Towards Legalized Corporate Secrecy in the European Union?

The EU is nothing More Than A Protection Racket Stealing from The Poor And Giving To The Rich.
How industry, law firms and the European Commission worked together on EU “trade secrets” legislation - a threat to consumers, journalists, whistleblowers, researchers and workers.
Summary:
This report (pdf version) is based on the analysis of hundreds of documents, [1] obtained through an access to documents request, exchanged between the European Commission's DG Internal Market and the main corporate lobby groups involved in the development of the EU's draft legislation on so-called “trade secrets”. Industry's main message throughout the process has been that trade secret theft is a major threat to the EU economy that demands a legislative initiative to improve and harmonise rules on the matter.
