First and foremost the client's idea for a new product must be protected prior to any disclosure of the idea. The first step in our relationship with a client is to execute a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to protect the client's rights for intellectual property protection. A copy of our standard NDA form is available for the client's review and use or we will be pleased to use the client's NDA form. All notes, sketches, drawings, etc. describing the 'idea' should be kept in a hard-bound note book by the inventor. Each page should be numbered and each entry dated and initialed. Discussions with others regarding the 'idea' should be avoided if at all possible. If not, all individuals involved in these discussions should execute a NDA with the inventor. The inventor's note book and all executed NDA forms will greatly assist the patent application process and help to validate the originality of the inventor's idea. Once the NDA has been properly executed, GID will arrange for a telephone conference call (at no charge) to discuss the client's idea(s) with our CEO and Senior Designer. This conference provides us with the opportunity to learn about the inventor's expectations for their new product idea and for the client to better understand what GID has to offer them to bring their idea to reality. GID Design and Business teams will review the information gathered from the conference call and will meet to formulate a proposal specific to the client's expectations for their new product idea that is consistent with GID's 30 plus years of expertise. This proposal will be presented to the client with an itemized list of related fees for the recommended initial phases of the Product Design & Development Process as outlined below
