Alternatively to patenting, a company intending to protect its invention can:

  • make it public domain, through a "defensive" publication, thus ensuring that no one else can patent it
  • keep the invention secret, using the trade secret, disciplined by art. 98 of the IPC, according to which the company information and technical-industrial experience, including commercial, subject to the legitimate control of the holder, constitute the subject of protection, where such information:

- is secret, in the sense that it is not on the whole or in the precise configuration and combination of its elements generally known or easily accessible by experts and sector operators

- has economic value because it is secret

- is submitted, by people subjected to legitimate control, to measures to be considered reasonably adequate to keep it secret.
