Title: NDA?
Post by: hydrarkt on December 03, 2021, 07:17:39 PM
Hi,
 I'm new here. How can I be assured that any ideas submitted on this site will not be used by the site owners.  Is there an NDA?
Thanks

On this site we can sign an NDA and have ours posted.

(note:  once you sign your name in at the bottom it will automatically fill it in at the top section)

However, in general most larger law firms and attorneys will not sign NDAs with solo inventors and it is not really needed.  Before you work with anyone you need to make sure they are registered by the US Patent Office here:  https://oedci.uspto.gov/OEDCI/practitionerSearchEntry

If they are registered, they have very strict rules and ethics requirements.  Stealing a clients idea would not be worth it because they would lose their entire patent license.
