The term on the NDA starts from the date of agreement

The term on the NDA starts from the date of agreement signed, or starts from the date the relationship terminated? If it is the former, then that means even two parties are still working together, the disclosed party is not bound to keep things confidential any more?Is it too restricted to make the term indefinite/forever?

I am in a an agreement with an individual that violate the Credit Repair Organization Act in his business practices with me. He and I have come to a mutual agreement on what would be required for me to sign a NDA on the specific circumstances that occurred. It is a settlement. His attorney is asking me to produce a note with my signature stipulating the terms of the agreement including that I will not pursue any legal remedies against this person in exchange for the settlement amount.Isn't this language that should be in an NDA?From his Attorney: I am going to need a copy of Keon's identification and a note (not an e-mail) stating that in exchange for the Settlement Amount he will not proceed with any negative government action to either you, your company, your heirs or any other person associated with your business directly. That he will further not proceed with any negative action in the public sector specifically with any intent to defame the character of you, your company, your heirs or any other person associated with your business directly. I will add the language regarding consequences of such. Keon can feel free to put a disclaimer for your non-payment in the letter

I started working remotely company in Ohio as a subcontractor

I started working remotely for a company in Ohio as a subcontractor 10 years ago. In 2011 they hired me full-time and I signed a non-compete agreement. I'm physically located in Florida and they're physically located in Ohio. I left the job in 2015 for 2 months and was re-hired in August 2015 with the promise that things would change for the better. They didn't. I've written multiple e-mails and had many calls trying to fix the problems that were impeding my ability to effectively do my job but they all went ignored.A recruiter contacted me last week and offered a job doing the same type of work remotely for a company located in yet another state that involves a specific e-commerce package. I'm certified in that package (and several others on my own) so they were very interested in hiring me for a lot more than I'm making now plus some pretty amazing benefits.In the interest of full-disclosure, I told the new company about the non-compete and sent it to them but after reviewing it they still want to hire me so I accepted the job. I submitted my two-week notice and was told immediately that they intend to sue me for breach of the non-compete.I have no intent of taking, talking about or even looking at the curreny company's clients. I would happily sign a separate agreement to that effect. The part I don't like is the restriction this seems to put on what I do for a living.The NDA and non-compete are lumped into one document, but the part about the non-compete is below. I had a lawyer review it already and he said it looks like it was written for salesperson. I'm a programmer and rarely interact with any clients directly.------------Agreement Not To Compete Or Solicit.termination of my employment with the Company: (a) become an employee of, owner of (exceptfor the ownership of not more than 3% of the shares of any Competing Business which is apublic company), consultant to or employee of any Competing Business (as defined herein) (b)I will not, directly or indirectly, for a period of 12 months following the voluntaryassist any Competing Business in the design, marketing, advertising or development of anyCompeting Product or Service (as defined herein); or (c) sell or assist in the sale of anyCompeting Product or Service through a jointly owned or managed enterprise, including withoutlimitation any arrangement whereby a third party makes or has made a debt or equity investment(other than a bona fide third party loan from a financial institution) in a legal entity of any type,including without limitation a corporation, partnership, limited liability company or other legalentity in which I or any of my spouse, children, spouses of children, grandchildren, spouses ofgrandchildren or a trust for the benefit of any of them is an owner or other participant, a jointmarketing program, a strategic alliance, a minority business enterprise relationship, adistributorship, a franchise agreement or license agreement.

I have an idea invention and I don't know what steps

I have an idea for an invention and I don't know what steps to take without getting ripped off. I have already contacted Patent USA and given them the whole idea, but it was in confidentiality and they will not disclose the information, from what I read. Idea Design Studio contacted me and without giving them the whole idea, they said they would contact me on Monday and if they went with the idea I would get 10% of the royalties. That to me sounds like a very very little amount. I would like to know what to do so I don't get taken for a ride.
