In our opinion, the law of confidentiality, although arguably not part of IP law, is an essential tool for the protection of anyone in the technology sector or creative industries. Confidentiality clauses or Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) can help to protect your ideas that are outside the protection of copyright. Remember that an application for a patent will need to establish the invention is not already in the public knowledge prior to the patent being applied for (even if it has previously been revealed by the inventor).

Using NDAs can help exclude the invention from falling into public knowledge when negotiating with developers, partners or investors.
