Bloggers - Disclosing Trade Secrets?!?

We, as you now know, author a blog tracking developments in trade secrets. Information Week is reporting that there is now a device employers can purchase to snoop on bloggers to ensure that they aren't doing the wrong thing - like disclosing trade secrets. We did a double-take when we first read this one, but now that we've read it more slowly it's no skin off our backs. Until they design software prohibiting a blog on the issue of trade secrets, you won't hear us complain.

Now the name of this thing - the "social media compliance product" - that sounds a tad Orwellian, no?
