Have you ever wondered ---
Thanks to Jim Turner (aka @Genuine on Twitter) for getting me thinking about this the other day. In my 20+ years in business I have signed dozens of NDA’s – maybe hundreds. How about you?
Is there a mass NDA Graveyard out there?
A more realistic reason to sign a new NDA is because they aren’t sure they can find the other(s) you have signed and also most NDA’s include a clause indicating that the most recently signed NDA supersedes all previous NDA’s. (interesting, eh?)
What about Corporate Records?
So, if you have signed a few, perhaps dozens, of NDA’s –—where have they all gone and why do you need to sign a new one? I know I’ve signed quite a few with Microsoft. I have a pretty good idea where they go at Microsoft, but I wonder where other companies keep their NDA’s. Which Brings up another obvious reason for signing a new NDA. The likelihood of finding the most recently signed NDA is (slightly) higher than the likelihood of finding an older one in the corporate records management system.
How about you?
How many NDA’s have you signed?
Have you ever wondered where they go?
Do you think there is a better way to sign & process NDA’s?
