Rule 507. Trade Secrets Privilege
(a) General Rule. A person has a privilege to refuse to disclose and to prevent other persons from disclosing a trade secret owned by the person, unless the court finds that nondisclosure will tend to conceal fraud or otherwise work injustice.
(b) Who May Claim. The privilege may be claimed by the person who owns the trade secret or the person’s agent or employee.
(c) Protective Measure. If a court orders a person to disclose a trade secret, it must take any protective measure required by the interests of the privilege holder and the parties and to further justice.
