Trade Secret Formulas of Big Companies

billkozyBillkozy on 03/24/2010

TradeSecretFormulasofBigCompanies Photo Trade secrets are unlike patents in that they are not revealed to the public. But they are however protected vigorously from theft and intimidation by extortion or other methods. Whereas patent, copyright and trademark laws encourage companies to disclose their ideas to the general public, trade secret law encourages companies to protect the concealment of their methodology. Trade secrets aren’t confined to recipes in the food industry either. Internet search engines for instance and polling companies employ techniques kept legally secret.

Here's some info on a big company that a lot of us here at Sploofus have relied on for help in both writing and taking quizzes! According to CNET News, "Up until May 2008, the inner workings of Google's data center operations were shrouded in secrecy. But then Google's Jeff Dean shed some light on parts of the operation to an overflowing crowd at a Google I/O conference. Google didn't reveal exactly how many servers it has, but estimates are easily in the hundreds of thousands. It did reveal that it uses more-or-less ordinary servers -- processors, hard drives, memory."

And with that I hope you enjoy this quiz about corporation product secrets. Good luck, and if you have a chance afterward, please rate the quiz. Of course it'll be your little secret if you don't....
Best wishes,

Interesting topic and very well written. Unbelievable it hasn't gotten an editor award.
