A trade secret can be a valuable asset. Any confidential business information that has an economic value can be a trade secret as long as measures are taken to maintain the secrecy of the information. Customer lists, software, formulas, and methods may be trade secrets. Trade secrets can be an alternative to protecting intellectual property by patents and do not require that the information be patentable.
