Definition of a Trade Secret

A trade secret can be a formula, pattern, process, device or compilation of information that is used to obtain an advantage over competitors who are not aware of, or do not know how to commercialize the trade secret. For example, a trade secret may be a formula for a chemical compound, a process of manufacturing, treating or preserving materials, a design for a machine or other device, lines of computer code, or a list of customers.

Trade secrets have three elements:

  • The information is secret and not known by competitors.
  • The information gives a competitive advantage over the competitors.
  • The information has been kept secret by reasonable efforts.

Pursue Justice with an Alabama Business Litigation Attorney!

If you or your business suspects inappropriate use of your trade secrets, it is crucial that you retain a lawyer swiftly, as a trade secret holder has the option to seek injunctive relief to prevent the erosion of the value of the trade secret as soon as the misappropriation becomes known. Once a trade secret has been leaked, it is very easy for third parties to take advantage of it.
