A trade secret lasts how long?

……. as long as it is kept a secret !

A patent lasts 20 years 

A trademark can go on forever as long as it is kept alive 

Likewise a trade secret can last a long time as long as it is kept a secret just like the Coca Cola recipe!

(Caveat – just remember what Mark Twain said about keeping secrets though)

(“Two men can keep a secret just as long as one of them is dead!” – Mark Twain)
