Trade Secret Law in Michigan
While federal law protects intellectual property assets such as trademarks, copyrights, and patents, state law protects private business information in the form of trade secret protection. In Michigan, the Michigan Uniform Trade Secret Act (MUTSA), provides that protection.
What is a Trade Secret?
A trade secret is information, in the form of a compilation, pattern, formula, plan, or program, that is kept secret within a business and derives value from its secrecy. The term trade secret is specifically defined by MCL 445.1902.
The question of whether certain information actually meets that definition is often the subject of litigation. Customer lists, vendor lists, and other information known by employees can rise to the level of a protectable trade secret under certain situations.
