How Does a Non-Disclosure Agreement Protect My Ideas?

Joe EscalanteHi Joe,

How does a non-disclosure agreement work? I want to share my idea with someone.

It works like this:

The party you are trying to get to sign your NDA will promise not to reveal anything they discover while you share your information with them. It doesn’t cover stuff they already knew, however, just stuff they discover and didn’t know already before they signed the NDA and were exposed to your information.

Check out the LegalZoom non-disclosure agreement. I have used it myself. It’s solid.
