Patenting your invention or idea is only the first step in protecting your hard work. Far too many inventors here in Texas have become the victims of unscrupulous competitors who take their inventions, modify them even slightly, and then market them without giving credit -- or paying royalties -- to the inventor. Fortunately, patent law attorneys help with more than just the application process.

Many people who have an idea, or even a working prototype, of a product do not have the means to get it to the public on a mass scale. Therefore, it is often necessary to partner with a company in order to manufacture, market and sell the product. The question then becomes how to protect your patent rights. This can be done with a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) between you and the company with which you have chosen to work.

Primarily, an NDA requires the company to keep your invention confidential, which means that it cannot be discussed with anyone else. This is especially crucial if your patent has not yet been approved. It would be ill-advised for an inventor to simply sign an NDA presented by the company since it might secure its interests more than yours. A Texas patent law attorney could help ensure that your rights are protected every step of the way.

Further, any NDA would need to be able to stand up to legal scrutiny if necessary. In addition, the agreement needs to afford you the option of exercising certain legal remedies available under the law if the company violates the agreement. If you have any questions regarding patent law and protecting your interests, please visit our website for more information.
