    Abstract:
    There are situations in which there is a legitimate need for confidentiality, and in those situations non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) serve a useful, and also reasonable, purpose. For example, an article in Entrepreneur says that an NDA "makes sense anytime you want to share something.valuable about your business and make sure that the other party doesn't use it without your approval, or outright steal it."' The article adds some specificity by enumerating situations in which an NDA is needed: 1. Discussing the sale or licensing of a product or technology.... 2. When employees have access to confidential and proprietary information. . . . 3. Presenting an offer to a potential partner or investor. . . . 4. Receiving services from a company that has access to sensitive information. . . . 5. Sharing business information with a prospective buyer.2 All of these represent situations in which the disclosure of information could injure business interests, put one at a disadvantage in potential future negotiations, or harm the confidentiality of third parties.
