A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is a civil contract that requires one or more parties to protect confidential information and prohibits them from disclosing it to third parties. Many businesses use non-disclosure agreements to protect intellectual property and other information from reaching competitors. If your non-disclosure agreement has been breached, you might be wondering what you can do to protect your business and get compensation.
My NDA Was Breached. What Should I Do?
Businesses often request one or more parties to sign an NDA to protect a new product, client information, marketing plans, or manufacturing processes. If you had an NDA agreement that was breached, it could make your business vulnerable. For such reasons, it is important to take action as quickly as possible to find a remedy.
Violating an NDA can lead to a breach of contract, trade secret misappropriation, or copyright infringement claim. The business that has been affected by the breached NDA must demonstrate that the other party’s breach resulted in damages. Parties affected by the breached contract can take legal action to get compensation for their loss.
