The cult of the NDA

www.frozennorth.org

The cult of the NDA. One startup even printed its NDA on the back of visitors badges, just like a software "shrink wrap" agreement: "By accepting this visitors badge, you agree to the terms of this Non-Disclosure Agreement." At one point, there was even a venture capital conference called NDA , sponsored by the now-defunct (but apparently rising from the grave) Red Herring. Why the cult of the NDA?

Jennifer Lopez and the NDA

Growthink Blog

Every day I see entrepreneurs trying to find that right balance between keeping their intellectual property confidential while sharing and promoting their business model with partners - especially investors - whose interest they so very much need to pique. My bias generally falls strongly on the side of transparency - both because it is a virtue unto itself - and because it takes a lot of effort in our “post your business on the Internet for all to see” age to truly maintain confidentiality.

allensblog: Why Entrepreneurs Shouldn't Worry about NDA's

Allen's Blog

I'm wondering if it's just me, but I've noticed a trend recently, both in the startups for whom I'm a Sherpa (for the investors to whom I introduce them), and those who approach me to see whether my Sherpa role is a fit, towards asking for (in some cases insisting on) an NDA.   So, for the VC, it only invites trouble to sign an NDA.  that is not to say that VC's routinely violate the "spirit" of NDA's.  allensblog.

Early Growth Financial Services

The Benefits Signaling — An NDA puts other parties on notice that your IP is valuable, not lightly shared, and that you intend to defend it and your business. Non-Disclosure Agreements, or NDAs, are legal contracts designed to protect confidential information. They set out the the parties involved, the types of information to be protected, the timeframe covered, and the legal ramifications for violations.

I can explain why, but if you saw what Brad Feld or Alexander Muse or Fred Wilson or Joel Spolsky or (my favorite take) Andrew Warner write about why they dont sign NDA s, you can skip the rest of this post. Or some big companies just have a boilerplate NDA that they throw in front of people as a matter of course.
