The size of the community you live in does not predetermine the value of your ideas. It also does not isolate you from getting into trouble misappropriating someone else’s intellectual property.
Any business doing business has a reputation and goodwill to protect through the law of trademarks. Artists and code writers have protectable copyrights. Any business with a customer list, supplier list, or financial information, has information that is valuable to the business because the information is not generally known. I can help protect that value with nondisclosure policies and agreements and enforce your rights under Washington Law of Trade Secret.
