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. 

You can find the post here:

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.
