'California law prohibits the publishing of information that the publisher knows to be a trade secret"
Please reconsider my point about freedom of speech:
From the actual constitutional 1st ammendment in the Bill Of Rights:
Congress shall make no law .... abridging the freedom of speech or of the press.
Where does it say that business plans are not property and where does it say that business plans are speech? In fact, where does it even say, even if you don't know what you are reporting is illegal - you have the right to report it?
