In response to statements — like me, I feel like I am being sucked dry, as if they were trying to steal my identity as they tried to homogenize things. – Balenciaga`s parent company, Kering, filed a complaint against Mr. Ghesquier. The Paris-based conglomerate said it had violated its contract with the brand, including against the agreement not to make statements that could undermine the image of Balenciaga or Kering. A legal document that many emerging designers find useful in the economy is a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality agreements or “NDAs” are confidentiality agreements that can be used to protect a designer`s rights over an idea, invention or design before sharing them with another person and/or another company. I agree with you that it is money in advance as soon as you hear a confidentiality agreement. If they find out they don`t know how to market their sample, you have no chance of getting paid one day! But really, I refuse to work for these clients. If you don`t even have a business or idea why help them create more chaos in the world or on you for this deal. Just do the right thing and say NO! Alternatively, you can cite on some images (from the web) similar designs that exist on the market and we can quote on this basis. There is no specific rule on the validity of an NOA. Instead, the term should be defined in each agreement. However, in general, a period of one to three years is normal.
A confidentiality agreement (NDA) can also be characterized as a Confidentiality Agreement (CA), a Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA), an Intellectual Property Information Agreement (PIA) or a Confidentiality Agreement (SA), regardless of the clause used, it is a contract by which the parties agree not to disclose the information covered by the agreement. So it`s a good idea for you, as emerging designers, to pay attention to privacy agreements and get to know them and, whenever possible, to have their own NDAs that protect your designs and ideas as much as possible. For the umpteenth time, I received an email from someone – who says he has read my book – who wants to know how to get their contractor or model manufacturer to sign a confidentiality agreement. My friends, if you are surprised by confidentiality agreements, I already know that you are a newcomer, because ideas are not stolen or protected. Contrary to urban myth – these types of agreements are very rare in the industry because they are not necessary. It is not necessary. We`re not the ones stealing your ideas. It`s your friends and competitors, not the ones who sew your product.
Let`s put it this way, if we were really the ones stealing their ideas (assuming they were worth it), don`t you think you`d know? This case works through the rumor mill and no one can afford the slightest hint of scandal. If you think about it for a moment, you may realize that confidentiality agreements are an insult because you imply – from the beginning – that your supplier or sample manufacturer is such a derogatory trader that you must apply legal penalties to keep us honest.
