In this thesis, we analysed law and economic issues revolving around trade secrets. The goal was to analyse the trade secret law and provide policy recommendations. Trade secrets law is a topic of great importance in both developed and developing countries where the intellectual property regime and enforcement may encourage the use of trade secrets over other kinds of protection mechanisms. The field of trade secrets is becoming more and more important in the academic literature because of an increasing number of cases in the media where trade secret regulation has come under the microscope.
