Abstract:     
Electronic surveillance has made it easier than ever to spy on competitors. This is only made worse by employees who leave an employer and feel a sense of loyalty to the new employer, which means the employee is willing to share confidential information. Estimates find that firms appropriate $4 billion worth of confidential information a year. A firm with only had two options for protecting this information: patent law, or reliance on trade secret law. Because of the requirements that must be met in order to obtain a patent, trade secret law is increasingly relied on.

This article is an effort to assist counsel’s educational efforts by providing a foundation for making a claim based on trade secret law. It also considers the forms of relief that counsel must examine.
