Cybertek Computer Products, Inc. v. Whitfield, 1977 Cal. App. LEXIS 2140, 203 U.S.P.Q. (BNA) 1020 (Cal. App. 1977) (full-text).
California Appellate Court Proceedings Edit
Defendant, who developed competing software system similar to that of former employer, argued that former employer's Auto/Issue System could not constitute a trade secret insofar as it consisted of well-known concepts in the computer industry.
The court held that, while general concepts are not protectable, the specific implementation of a particular combination of general concepts here constituted a protectable trade secret.
