Thanks for your e-mail, in answer to your questions, the US company has full IP protection and yes I am willing to handle any issues that arise with
the Asian supplier.
To clarify, the NDA that will be put in place with the Asian suppliers is the US company's NDA and so obviously has their full approval.
I do have some further questions:
- Should I contract the suppliers or the US company to work solely through me, or both?
- What is reasonable to put in that contract regarding future business between the US company and the supplier, i.e. can I also stipulate that it must be done through me?
- Should the contract have an agreed term? What happens at the end of the term?
- Do you have any draft agreements that I could use as a basis for the contract?
I look forward to your response
