Okay I doubt their are much lawyers in here but I'm sure their are people with experiences....
Suppose I sign an NDA and I send it to the other party but never receive a copy with their signature on it with a promise that I'll get a copy(soon lol).
From a legal stand point where is my obligation to abiding by an NDA at this moment in time?
I'm not asking because I'm an asshat and want to release information but I feel that the other party has some kind of "political"(probably not the best word to use) leverage over my actions and I say this because I was given information before I signed the NDA
What are you thoughts on this?
What are my rights?
(This was basically a general run of the mill NDA with the time frames changed as being the only alterations)
(I will take your reply as a comment and not any type of legal advice and you will not be held accountable for any of my actions for any advice or comments you present to me)
I am not a lawyer, i'm just some guy and you should ask a lawyer (I know you say you'll just take it as a comment, but it's wise to always put that disclaimer anyway).
Does the NDA cover trade secret material which is hidden with some attempt to protect it? If so, you probably will be liable if you disclose and could be even without signing
Is the NDA more like a contract than a memo of understanding? If so, they would need to sign it and deliver their end of the deal for it to be binding
