Trade Secrets and California Law – Defining Trade Secrets

For many businesses, success depends upon keeping certain, key pieces of company information strictly in-house. This information might be a certain technique or formula used to create a product, a client list, or a business plan- all of these could indeed represent “trade secrets.” Yet there is no hard-and-fast list of types of information that are uniformly labeled as trade secrets. Rather, the information must fit into the definition set forth in California Civil Code Section 3426-3426.11, known as the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, or UTSA.
