My husband previously worked for a company that audited telecommunications bills for other companies. Now he is publishing a book telling companies how they can audit their own bills. All of the information in the book is public knowledge--how telecom works, how telecom companies do their billing, etc. My husband has been doing the research for the book before his previous employment, during his previous employment as their training manager, and now after his previous employment. The company he worked for had him sign a noncompete agreement that also detailed much about proprietary information and etc. They love to sue. What are the issues we should be aware of? Could the company potentially win a suite against us, and what would the repurcussions be? Would it help if he wrote under a pseudonym?
