Standard Non-Disclosure Agreement
I use this form if the company I have contacted does not have an NDA of their own. Always make sure the company and yourself have a signed original. This means print two copies, sign both, send both to the company and have them send one signed back to you for your records. Don’t send the company any material on your idea until you get the signed NDA back.

I use this document if I am discussing any idea with a single individual. Make sure you both have a signed original for your records.

Group Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement
I use this document which is the same as the individual NDA, but has more slots for signatures when I am discussing ideas with larger groups.

I use this agreement when an individual wants to enter into an agreement where I act as their representative to companies seeking a licensing agreement. I am asking for 25% of any agreement I get them. This is well below industry standards as most ask for 40% to 50%. Plus, they charge a review fee.

Design Services Agreement
This Designer agreement is just an example of what a licensing agreement looks like. I wanted to let you see that Inventor agreements come in all shapes and sizes. Read through this agreement thoroughly and see if you would agree to the terms or if you would have asked for anything else to be added. It is just a sample to learn from and not intended for use.

Additional Inventor Help
I get asked all the time about Sell Sheets. Below are some of the ones that I used to get my ideas licensed. Below each Sell Sheet is the actual product that is in stores now. If you have any questions feel free to Contact me.
Note that other than the curved angle of the handle arms the product is just like the sell Sheet model.
Toss and Score
This was an interesting project. I got a license on the concept below, but after discussing the product further we started adding on features and more playability to the game until we had the product below. This is what I call "What started out a Dog ends up a Cat" Don't be so married to your idea you will not consider changing it to make it more marketable.
