Welcome to Internet Law Radio. This is Attorney Enrico Schaefer. My law firm specializes in internet law issues. We have an internet law attorney for just about anything that occurs on the internet. Today, we’re going to be talking about trade secret protection.
In the age of intelligence and information and Ideas, trade secrets are becoming critically important. The first thing that you need to understand is, really, what is a trade secret. The last thing you want to end up is in trade secret litigation, so the best thing you can do is protect yourself on the front end to make sure that your trade secrets are secure, and they’re not going anywhere. My number one tip for that is you need a trade secret program.
That program is going to identify your trade secrets in-house. It’s going to identify who has access to those trade secrets. It’s going to identify, as you develop trade secrets in the future, what kind of process those trade secrets are going to go into for protection. Your trade secret protection is going to be both process and documents.
