Trade Secret Protection
With the right formula, device, or pattern developed by your company, you can rise above the competition. This original information or technology might be called a “trade secret,” as only you and your selected business associates know it. However, if someone else gains access to this confidential knowledge, then your business success could be significantly compromised.
Fortunately, trade secrets are protected by law as intellectual property. The attorneys of Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C. can help Fort Worth business owners pursue this legal protection and fight back against anyone who tries to take or use a trade secret.
What is Protected by Trade Secret Law?
Many materials are protected under trade secret law, and it’s important for business owners to be aware of how comprehensively their original methods are protected. Protected knowledge or materials include:
- Computer software
- Computer hardware
- Business methods
- Product design
- Blueprints / drawings
- Technical specifications
- Customer lists
- Machine modifications
Any trade secret related to these materials is protected under intellectual property law. If your confidential business methods, technology, or other materials have been infringed upon by another individual or business, seek immediate legal assistance to protect the knowledge your company has worked so hard to develop.
