What is a Trade Secret?
A trade secret is information that is generally not known to the public or competitors, has a benefit to the person with the information and has been reasonably protected. Some possibilities of intellectual property that may be considered trade secrets include:
- Confidential Information (i.e. customer lists)
- Manufacturing processes
- Commercial secrets
If these secrets are not protected by any type of agreement or contract, you run the risk of losing your competitive advantage. The loss of competitive advantage could mean a severe drop in sales for your business.
