Your Invention & NDAs

A patent grants inventors exclusive rights to their inventions and prevents others from making, using, or selling the invention without permission. If your invention is not patentable, you can still protect it by having potential customers sign a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA. Of course, some people will violate the terms of an NDA even if they sign it. It is therefore once again important to know who you are entrusting with your invention. If you have more questions, we suggest consulting with an experienced patent attorney.
