example non disclosure agreement

1 post in this topic

[size=2]Hi all, first of all, it's nice to be a part of the community. This is a difficult topic because it is secretive by the very nature of what it relates to.

My own role is a sound designer and composer but I am studying media law as part of my course whereby a the hypothetical question posed to me was..................


[size=3][quote] You are part of a team employed by an independent game development company. As such you have signed a “Work for hire” contract and a non-disclosure agreement with them. Your team’s latest task is to develop a game based on the latest [b]James Bond[/b] film “Close to the void”. The game will be made available, exclusively, for the [b]Xbox 360 [/b]console. The game content will reference the James Bond character and the plot of the film. In addition the theme song “Nothing” by [b]Adel[/b] and [b]Jay-Z[/b] will be incorporated into the game. [/quote][/size]




[font=Times New Roman][size=3]Your thoughts are appreciated but not required. What I am looking for is an example of a non-disclosure agreement that relates to this type of scenario - movie/book/character to game - so that I can read it thoroughly for my research and so that I can untangle the web that surrounds the many other agreements related to such a project. [/size][/font][/size]

There doesn't actually appear to be a question in the quote you posted so not really sure what you want beyond a suggestion to Google "example non-disclosure agreement" and read one of the hundreds of samples. If you have a specific question then obviously please do post again.
