Misappropriation of Trade Secrets
Trade secrets can include a business formula, compilation, pattern, program, device, method, technique, or process which, though neither copyrighted nor patented, is used in the conduct of the owner’s business, is not disclosed to the public, and provides the owner with some competitive advantage. Misappropriation of a trade secret occurs when a person acquires the trade secret of another by means which the person knows or has reason to know constitutes improper means, or when a person discloses or uses the trade secret without the express or implied consent of the trade secret owner.
The Florida Uniform Trade Secrets Act prohibits the misappropriation of trade secrets and under certain circumstances provides for the remedies of injunctive relief, damages and attorneys’ fees.
