Trade secrets are proprietary and valuable information that can be owned by a company or entity and protected from public disclosure. Some of the more well-kept trade secrets in history include the formulas used to make Pepsi and Coca Cola. When a trade secret is protected, the law allows the owner of the rights to prevent the information from becoming public. Should someone attempt to publicize the restricted information, a court may grant an injunction to stop this from happening if significant harm to the trade secret holder would result from the disclosure.
