Keeping your secret secret

Short Title: 
Secretive trade secrets

My previous tip discussed the general definition/qualifications for information to be considered a "trade secret." The next logical step is protecting that trade secret. The good news is that trade secrets are protected without any procedural formalities such as registration or certificates. Another happy fact is that the a trade secret can be protected for potentially infinite duration. For these reasons, the protection of trade secrets may appear to be particularly attractive for SMEs.
