Can't I just patent any trade secrets my business has?
While you can patent any trade secrets that are vital to your business, patenting whatever trade secrets you may have will make that secret information available to the public, which will allow anyone — including competitors — to have access to that information. That's why it's important that companies use other avenues to protect their trade secrets without divulging any confidential information or trade secrets to the public. This can be done in a variety of different ways, including non-disclosure agreements and other security measures that can help companies privately protect trade secrets. Understanding how to protect this kind of vital and sensitive information is why it's so important to have an experienced intellectual property attorney working with your company to ensure your interests are properly protected.
