Our Proprietary images/logos can be protected in several ways, i.e. trade secret law, patents, copyrights, or trademarks.
Because our Full size Exclusive grill covers use the same image for 2 different sizes, there is small variability in the overall print.
In the U.S., Trade Secret law is one of the primary legal and most critical means by which a company protects its intellectual property. Other means are: patents, copyrights, and trademarks. Trade secret protection is not covered by any Federal law, but are protectable under a States common law or, if the State has adopted the Uniform Trade Secrets Act [UTSA], then the UTSA would apply. (As of the end of 1995, 40 States have adopted the UTSA, MA. has not as yet).
Most countries have now adopted express statutory protections for trade secrets, and specific provisions were included in NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) [effective, 1/1/94] and in the GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) [effective 1/1/95]. Although the specific requirements vary from country to country, the general tenor follows U.S. laws with respect to the definition of a trade secret, and the requirement to take reasonable steps to maintain secrecy.
