We understand the pain.

Your innovation is what differentiates you, and protecting it is a must. You can’t file patents on every new idea but they still need protection. You have critical assets like algorithms, know-how and business methods that you prefer not to patent and put in the public domain.

Protecting your confidential information is a 24/7 struggle: Employees might leave to join the competition and you lose control of core institutional knowledge. Perhaps you’ve disclosed too much in a patent or to a development partner. Supply chain partners might share your data with others. Maybe you’ve accepted sensitive information from a smaller company. Employees might be sending emails with sensitive data, or sharing information not covered by NDA without any oversight. Theft of know-how from former employees and potential partners poses an ongoing and significant threat. Fortunately, Tangibly is here to help!

The Federal Trade Commission is attempting to regulate non-competes out of existence, many states already have. What used to be a viable strategy to help manage trade secrets is no longer an option.

Courts Require
Proactive Measures

Documentation and identification of trade secrets before misappropriation is now needed to make case for injunction and protection.

See Irth v. Apex and Mallet v. Lacayo.
