The only way to shake hands with a reluctant critic is to give an indication of the miracles that the inventor will reveal without revealing the miracles themselves. For inventors, the equivalent of showing a leg is market research, a sparkling CV and a heavy introduction. If an expert feels that there is something valuable to see, the listener will agree to change his general and disloyal confidentiality agreement to something tailored that is a little less unfair (see the second stage agreement below). Also remember that a relationship can be based on multiple confidentiality agreements. You don`t need to reveal everything after signing the first agreement, you just have to reveal enough to get to the next contract and one step closer to your goal. Invention City and its partners are constantly active in the research, development and commercialization of many ideas, new materials, inventions and products of their own and others. There is always the possibility of a conflict between your submission and the elements developed by Invention City and its partners. For this reason, Invention City cannot consider submitting a confidential or contractual obligation to itself or to any of its partners: this agreement must not restrict the ability of Invention City and its partners to pursue commercial interests in any way. In all other cases, a confidentiality agreement or NOA will prevent your idea or invention from being taken over by others. Step 2 – The date on which the agreement is drawn up and the name of the unveiling party and the party receiving it must close the first part. If someone is interested in your invention, they are open to amending certain details of their standard confidentiality agreement to address your concerns. Inform the listener of your concerns about certain points in the agreement and explain why these issues are problematic. Ask the operator based on his ideas how the agreement could be modified to reflect your specific concerns.
General concerns will land flat and will not go anywhere. The key is to be specific and submit your concerns with reasons that the examiner can understand. The reviewer may not come up with ideas to solve your problems. In this case, you can propose solutions. If the examiner has a problem with your proposed solution, ask the examiner for an explanation. Remember that this is the first phase of building a relationship. If you are considered reasonable and understanding, future (more important) negotiations will be more fluid. It is agreed and understood that, with respect to your bid, there is no relationship or obligation of any kind between you and the City of Invention or you and any of Invention City`s partners, unless a formal agreement has been reached, and only, as expressed in this agreement.
