Help on intellectual property rights

The European IPR Helpdesk, which provides assistance on IPR for those involved in EU-funded research and development projects, has published a fact sheet about the importance of confidentiality of business information. It offers definitions of trade secrets and how to protect them, including guidance auditing policies, storage and employee and business partner awareness. While the guidance is helpful, businesses should be careful of taking generic advice in this area while EU law remains unharmonised.
