Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Attorneys Stim (License Your Invention) and Fishman (Working for Yourself) target small-business managers with this comprehensive explanation of nondisclosure agreements (NDAs). The book covers the use of the agreements to prevent theft of business secrets by employees and competitors, beginning with a discussion of what trade secrets are and which kind can be protected by NDAs and followed by a review of the essential elements of a basic nondisclosure form. There is a chapter on agreements for specific situations in which secrets might be divulged, such as software beta tests, employment interviews, business visits, and sharing customer lists. Readers will learn what the options are if an agreement is violated and how to find and work with an attorney to enforce an NDA. The book includes a glossary, a list of state signatories to the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and plenty of sample forms for NDAs printed in the text and on an accompanying CD-ROM. Highly recommended for business collections. Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach, Rochester, NY

By Mike Tarrani HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 12, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book is applicable to all businesses and industries, but my review is from the perspective of an IT consultant. In my profession we've all signed a nondosclosure agreement at one time or another, and we frequently make presentations or provide information that discloses trade secrets, or business-sensitive information to clients and potential clients.
This book contains a clear explanation about what you should be protecting with a nondisclosure agreement and does so in detail. The author clearly explains how to protect youself from both employees and competitors, as well as from potential business alliances (contractor/subcontractor, suitors in a merger or acquisition to whom you expose sensitive information, and clients to whom you make presentations and reveal processes and other sensitive information).
Key topics of importance that this book covers include:
* How much protection an NDA affords you.
* Remedies available to you in the NDA is violated.
* Alternatives to NDAs.
It also covers non-compete agreements and their limitations, especially in certain states, and gives example NDAs for specific situations such as beta testing, customer data, etc. The accompanying CD ROM provides fifteen sample forms that can be used with little or no modification (although I recommend that all be checked by an attorney who specializes in intellectual property law and is familiar with nuances of the law in your state).

This is a useful starting book, especially if you want to use the forms and templates provided in and with the book. However for understanding of the contractual agreements, I felt this book was lacking for its completeness.

Dear All,

I have duly received the book I ordered, which actually arrived here earlier than expected. The book has met exactly what I wanted and expected. Then, I had a few questions on some of the contents. And I emailed them to Nolo, the piublisher and received their kind comments on them properly. I was very satisfied with their replies.
