TRADE SECRET
A typical example is Coca-Cola. This soft drink
was invented in 1886 and was never protected
by a patent, only by a trademark (for the name
Coca-Cola) and by an industrial design (for this
very special design of the Coca-Cola bottle,
supposed to be in the shape of a woman wearing
a long skin-tight dress).
The process of the Coca-Cola drink is secret and
is only known by two persons in the world. They
are not allowed to travel together, so that there is
no chance of them dying at the same time in an
accident. The secret of the Coca-Cola process
was well kept during all these years, and nobody
is able to produce a drink with exactly the same
taste still today. You all know that Pepsi Cola, its
biggest competitor, has a different taste.
