"A NDC should be signed and returned and in hand before anything is disclosed. That keeps it clean."

"I keep wondering if what I am looking at falls into the construction field terms. The best I can come up with would be using the word "fixture"."

"Thank you, I guess I am being overly cautious, not trusting anyone! Have you had other clients submit to you this non-disclosure form for you to sign, and if so have they disclosed then their invention? PS Do you sleep?"

Hello Tim,

welcome to the group. Feel free to upload images and videos of your invention, if you are legally protected. Feel free to ask questions of the members. We just started this new site and it's growing. All the best,

Mike

In my experience, and I am NOT a lawyer, you want to protect yourself with non-disclosure agreements until you have finalized your invention. That's what I did. then I file a Provisional Patent Application , which is good for one year, Then next step is the utility patent and/or design patent.

I had everyone I showed my invention sign a non-disclosure agreement. It's a good procedure to follow. Also, you should be keeping an Invention Journal in which you record all the steps of your invention and then have it regularly witnessed by signature and date. The Invention Journal should be a journal with numbered pages.

I don't review other peoples' ideas unless they send me NDC form. But I'm happy to respond in generalities to the basic idea. Also, it doesn't pay to get too paranoid. Most, if not all inventors believe that everyone wants to steal their idea. What they don't realize is that the 'big idea' could just as easily turn into the 'big headache'. Derek Pater works on a very different basis. He's a builder-inventor in Australia, and a member. You might ask him for his ideas.
yes, I do sleep... I get up real early and then I catnap during the day..

You can find those online if you google them. the book 'Inventing for Dummies' has a sample agreement. Nolo Press has good books on inventing with sample contracts. You can write your own once you get the idea of what it's supposed to say.

well, if it's related to a home product it can fit in here

I got to the second lever review with the Home Depot , but the Electrical Buyer decided against it. My sales team had an order in hand from a 200-store retailer, but this was cancelled early in the year due to the economy.
