A Practical Introduction to Trade Secret Law and Strategy
By Darin W. Snyder and David S. Almeling

SAN FRANCISCO - JUNE 13, 2012 - Trade secrets--stealing them, protecting them, and enforcing them--are increasingly big business. To understand why, consider any information you know about your job that you're supposed to keep confidential. That information may qualify as a trade secret. Trade secrets concern everyone from the engineer who invents a better mousetrap to the marketer who knows pre-release prices, from the CEO who drafts the company's five-year plan to the HR rep who manages the organizational chart, and so on.

Keeping Secrets: A Practical Introduction to Trade Secret Law and Strategy is an accessible introduction to all things trade secret. It examines the audacious schemes of trade secret thieves by presenting dozens of case studies and the lessons to learn from them. It also offers best practices for protecting trade secrets from theft, investigating a suspected breach, and enforcing a trade secret in court and other forums. Preeminent intellectual property lawyers Darin Snyder and David Almeling have written this book for anyone who wants to learn about trade secrets: business people and engineers, judges and students, even attorneys who don't specialize in trade secret law.
