Q:
Are my business's client lists and "confidential information" automatically protected material from trade secret theft or infringement under New York law?

A:
Scary as it may seem, the answer is NO, unless you can demonstrate that you spent considerable time, effort and expense to develop this information, and that it was not easily obtained (or obtainable) from the public domain.
