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.
