Data General Corp v. Digital Computer Controls case brief summary

Data General Corp v. Digital Computer Controls (Protecting TS)

P sold minicomputers, included design documentation for repair/maintenance. Documents were marked as confidential by P, and customers received contractual agreement of confidentiality. D took design docs, and started selling his own minicomputers.

Did P sufficiently guard their TS?

Holding and Reasoning:
Marked everything confidential, contract applied to any order, contracts were requisite to sale for every customer, employees/vendors signed confidentiality agreements, and design documents were only available to purchasers.
