Because these intellectual property claims involve commercial entities and intangible assets, intellectual property litigation is often very complex. A typical trade secret theft case, for instance, may involve breach of contract issues, employee / employer issues, nondisclosure agreement violations, business torts, and misleading advertising and unfair competition claims, all of which may cross multiple state and federal court jurisdictions

Theft of Trade Secret

The most important point to understand about trade secrets is that there is no clearly prescribed definition of trade secrets. Rather, the context in which a dispute over ownership of information arises determines whether a court will treat the information as a trade secret. As a general rule, information that has commercial value and that has been kept confidential will be considered a trade secret. The owner of the information may be entitled to relief if a person or entity has stolen or divulged it in violation of a duty of trust or a written nondisclosure agreement.
