Legal Question

Asked on: 8/30/13, 6:18 am

Hello,

I have a new product/invention idea that I would like to eventually market and sell. I'm completely new to this field. I can't personally build my product so I would have to get product engineers in on this to create some prototypes for me. The idea is not patented yet, so what measures can I take to avoid anyone stealing my idea in order to have it not only brought to life (by product engineers), but also market the prototype to venture capitalists? I understand that I can have anyone I speak to or deal with, sign a non-disclosure agreement. Will that completely protect my idea until it's patented? Also, where can I get a non-disclosure agreement form to take with me? Must I have a lawyer draw one up?

Thank you so much for your help!
