Misappropriation of Trade Secrets

Misappropriation of Trade Secrets occurs when a person wrongfully uses or discloses a trade secret in violation of an express or implied obligation.

The elements of misappropriation of trade secrets are:

  1. A valuable trade secret;
  2. Misappropriation of the trade secret through use, disclosure, or nondisclosure of use of the trade secret; and
  3. The misappropriation is wrongful because it was made in breach of an express or implied contract or by a party with a duty not to disclose.
