Non-disclosure agreement (media concept)

If you are supplying an idea about a book, film, game or other media concept to a publisher or other media corporation, you may want to protect that idea using a non-disclosure agreement. This document has been designed for use in exactly this situation.

A confidentiality agreement is no guarantee that your ideas will not be misappropriated. Nonetheless, there are a number of good reasons for insisting upon such an agreement. First, it demonstrates to the disclosee that you are serious about protecting your rights. Second, it clarifies the subject matter and scope of the protection (or intended protection). And third, it may create enforceable rights in the event that you need to go to court.

This document is an adapted version of our unilateral non-disclosure agreement.
