"To the extent that appellee has an interest in its health, safety, and 
environmental data cognizable as a trade-secret property right under 
Missouri law, that property right is protected by the Taking Clause of 
the Fifth Amendment. Despite their intangible nature, trade secrets have 
many of the characteristics of more traditional forms of property. 
Moreover, this Court has found other kinds of intangible interests to be 
property for purposes of the Clause. Pp. 1000-1004." -- SCOTUS
