A famous example of trade secrets protection

Post Time:2011-07-27 Source: Author: Views:

In May, 2006, Pepsi received a letter from un-named individuals that offered to sell trade secret information “owned” by Coke to Pepsi. Pepsi immediately notified The Coca-Cola Company officials. Coke notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI]. The FBI later arrested three individuals who were facing criminal charges.

It is important to understand that trade secret protection is LOST when the trade secret enters the public domain.
