NDA for patent right protection
Disclosing your invention to family, friends, suppliers, manufacturers, or potential customers prior to filing for patent can cause inventors to lose their right to file for patent. NDAs can preserve these rights.

NDAs can be crucial to maintaining legal protections for trade secrecy.
