Trade Secret

Our client had been sued by an individual claiming trade secret infringement for manufacture of a product which had allegedly been disclosed to our client under an NDA. We argued that there was no trade secret. In support of that contention we located a video, on YouTube, which showed that the exact same product was being manufactured by a company in Germany prior to the alleged disclosure to our client. At the settlement conference the plaintiff agreed to dismiss the claim without receiving any payment.
