Hi everyone I’m JD Houvener your host of the bold today’s show or Hugh the inventor or entrepreneur get your daily inspiration seeing go make the world a better place [Music]

happy Monday everybody we’re here doing a new five-part series on trade secret trade secret misappropriation this is a part of the law that a lot of times gets forgotten and it’s so closely related to patent law that I wanted to talk about it this whole week trade secrets are there’s there’s no certificate there’s no document that you’re given when you when you have a trade secret it’s largely having to do with your company and the employees that are in it the whole idea about trade secrets is be able to prevent employees from taking information that’s economically valuable that you’ve been trying to keep secret and that’s not readily known in the public to the next company that they go to or company that they start so that’s a really heart of what a trade secret is we’re gonna be talking this week about remedies ways that you can actually be proactive in making sure that you identify protect and minimize the impact of any misappropriation otherwise known as infringement of trade secrets to you and your company so this whole idea of trade secrets is a sort of novel in that we don’t really need to understand patent law to understand trade secret and so I want to walk you through just trade secrets first and at the end of the week we’ll talk about how that relates to patents down the road if you have any questions about trade secrets we do have a good section on our website if you go to bulb patents comm and look under other services you can see trade secrets are right there and if you have additional questions and you want to talk with an attorney please give us a call at
