      surveillance. The evaluation of whether protection for a tradesecret is extinguished because the tradesecret was disclosed to a person or entity outside of the company is common judge-made law; meaning, there's a lot of room for judges to use equity in their evaluations and few hardline rules. I see a zero percent liklihood that a defendant could raise government surveilance as a defense and expect to succeed.

      On your broader conversation about corporations and positive social changes, the insurance industry has been advocating for climate change legislation for years.
