Lawyer Chen Yunfeng: Blockchain technology can be used to protect "trade secrets"

On July 8th, Chen Yunfeng, senior partner of Zhonglun Wende Law Firm and director of the Internet Finance Professional Committee, published an article on “The Model of Blockchain Technology as a “Trade Secret” Protection”. The article points out that blockchain technology as a new technology, its technical basis is open source (that is, open source, users can use the source code to modify and learn on the basis of it), enterprises usually modify the basic technology, And build an ecological application that matches it. In this case, it is difficult to prove the "secretity" of the technical source code. Therefore, it is more appropriate to consider the commercial ecological application or plan constructed by using the blockchain technology principle as a business secret.
