minal Trade Secret CrimesIt is a federal offense to divulge a "trade secret." Trade secret has a very broad definition. The United States defines it as all forms and types of financial, business, scientific, technical, economic or engineering information, including patterns, plans, compilations, program devices, formulas, designs, prototypes, methods, techniques, processes, procedures, programs, or codes, whether tangible or intangible.
This is not dependent on how the information is stored, compiled, or memorialized physically, electronically, graphically, photographically, or in writing if the owner has taken measures to keep the information private and the information derives individual economic value, whether realized or potential.
According to the federal law, a trade secret does not need to be novel like a patent, but must be at least minimally novel to be protected.
Stealing trade secrets is also a violation of California law and therefore one can be prosecuted on the state or federal level for theft of trade secrets.
