I was reading an article on how to copyright software

http://www.wikihow.com/Copyright-Software

It talks about how to submit your software code
and what to do if it contains trade secrets.  And
then it says this,

	• Your copyright extends only to the actual expression or execution of the
software application. It does not protect the software concept, program logic or
algorithms, or the layout of the user interface.


It sounds like your trade secrets are not protected.
