Trade secrets are often overlooked. It’s a shame because these secrets often can hold just as much, if not more value that more traditional forms of intellectual property, being trademark, copyrights, and patents. Unlike those forms of intellectual property, trade secrets are not registered with the government. Instead of formal registration, the existence of a protectable trade secret turns on whether that information was actually kept a secret.
You must take reasonable steps to maintain the secrets that give you a competitive advantage. This may sound simple, but in practice, this requires businesses to have a global view of their property, who has access to it, and how employees are trained to understand the value of this information.

Like most things in life, it is far better to be proactive when it comes to protecting trademarks. Forming a solid foundation of what valuable secrets you have, and how you plan to maintain them, will provide a great benefit in the future.
