Trade Secret

A trade secret is defined under Washington law as information, including a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique or process that:

  • Derives independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally known to, and not being readily ascertainable by proper means by, other persons who can obtain economic value from its disclosure or use; and
  • Is the subject of efforts that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy.

Other jurisdictions have comparable definitions.
