Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I am negotiating with some friends to start a software business, pooling ideas we have. What can I do before advancing my ideas to establish proof I had thought of the ideas before publishing them to my friends? Is a statutory declaration stating the ideas proper? A letter postmarked before the day I share them with my friends?
We have signed Non-Disclosure Agreement forms. They are both in NZ (I'm an NZ citizen living in Perth). Our NDA agrees each can do as they wish with their own ideas - it's just to cover safely discussing them with each other.
Thank you for your help. I'm off to the Post Shop.
