Richard Hsu (@hsutubeesq), a Silicon Vally technology lawyer and partner at King & Spalding has a new blog that I’d like to recommend.
Named “The One Page Blog”, it aims to showcase Richard’s knowledge of IP and technology law using one page posts. Most of the posts have a downloadable PDF with a useful framework or summary. A picture tells a thousand words.
I particularly like Richard’s recent post on how to analyze a confidentiality agreement. The model Richard proposes will be useful to lawyers who are not IP-experts or those who need to talk to their lawyers about some of the issues that should be considered.
The challenge I find with a non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement is always one of negotiating an agreement that is fair and reasonable to both parties. Typically the boilerplate I receive from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies is far too much in their favor. Redlining and negotiation then follows!
Richard’s blog also has a 48 second video entitled “making my own magnetic rubik’s cube.” It is excellent and a standard I aspire to as I seek to do more video blog posts:
I look forward to more posts and video from the “The One Page Blog.”
