Trade Secrets, Our Oceans and BP
Frank Pasquale (Seton Hall) has an excellent post over at Concurring Opinions about how the current administration permitted BP to dump a chemical dispersant into the oceans in the immediate aftermath of the spill, a dispersant about which no toxicity studies have ever been done and the ingredients of which are trade secrets.
Pasquale refers to his recent article on the relationship between property rights and the precautionary principle called Beyond Innovation and Competition and available on SSRN.
