Know-how is a type of information which, to the extent that it is confidential, can be protected under the law of confidential information. In contrast to the patent system, where a limited monopoly over an invention is granted in return for publication of details of the invention in a patent, confidential information must be protected by ensuring that publication does not occur: the key to the value of know-how is the maintenance of secrecy.
