What's in your NDA?

Attorney Melissa C. Marsh writes:

As a business attorney for over 10 years, I have seen my fair share of useless, unenforceable nondisclosure agreements and confidentiality agreements. Generally this seems to occur when individuals select some form out of a book, or now off the internet, and rely on it as if one size fits all. Well it doesn't for a multitude of reasons.

Separately, if the person receiving confidential information discloses it, either deliberately or unconsciously, what are you going to do? You won't be able to patent disclosed ideas.
