What kind of things can I protect as a trade secret?

The Uniform Trade Secret Act provides a list of the types of things which can be protected as a trade secret as long as they are kept secret and derive economic value from their secrecy. These things include:

1. Formulas.

2. Patterns.

3. Compilations.

4. Programs.

5. Devices.

6. Methods, techniques and processes.

While this list is not exclusive, it provides a good framework for understanding the types of things are typically protectable as trade secrets.
