80.Tiffany decides to start selling her great grandmother’s secret apple pie recipe. It becomes a huge hit, and she opens up a business, “Tiffany’s Awesome Pie.” She decides she is just going to keep the recipe confidential, only shared on a “need to know” basis with a few trusted workers who are bound not to disclose that information to anyone else. One day, Tiffany notices that another store opened; it is named “Josh’s Better Pie” and is selling the same pie, in terms of its smell, texture, and taste, that Tiffany sells. Apparently, Josh simply reconstructed or made a lucky guess as to Tiffany’s Awesome Pie contents.

D. LSB 425-427. Trade secrets may last indefinitely, but, by themselves, do not provide them any legal protection.
