    Guys, I'm going bonkers. What is the other damn word for [intellectual] information? I think it starts with pre.... The word I'm looking for designates information created in house and people are often sued over taking this kind of information to another company when they go to work there.

    Anyone know what I'm thinking of? I'll give you a giant virtual hug if you know. I'm dying here because it's such a common word, especially in the tech biz and I can't think of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you talking about IPR - Intellectual Property Rights?

    Nope. Not intellectual property or proprietary information. There's another one, I just can't for the life of me think of it!

    I, too, missed his rejection of proprietary, so I changed mine to privileged. :eek:

    I can only think of precompetitive, but it's definition doesn't really match what you're looking for.
