Confidential information notes

[UPDATE 2012-07-03: See the Confidential Information chapter of the Common Draft annotated compendium (in progress). ]

[UPDATE 2010-08-26: See the PRECUT nondisclosure agreement form that I posted last week, along with the accompanying Curator’s Notes with additional clauses and commentary.]

Confidentiality provisions are used in many agreements, including standalone nondisclosure agreements. The pages listed below discuss some of the issues that can come up in negotiating such provisions.

Additional reading: For an excellent overview of nondisclosure agreements, see What is important in a confidentiality agreement or non-disclosure agreement (NDA)? [link], by Wilson Sonsini partner Yoichiro (“Yokum”) Taku.
