Script Nondisclosure Agreement
Screenwriters, before you submit a script for evaluation, get this Script Nondisclosure Agreement signed to protect your rights and guard against disclosure of details of the script to third parties.
- The Nondisclosure Agreement (or "NDA") should be signed by any potential producers with whom you have discussions with respect to developing and producing the script.
- The producers agree to keep all information strictly confidential and not disclose it to any third party.
- The writer is disclosing the information to the producer solely for the purpose of allowing the producer to evaluate the script for development into a film project.
- The confidential information is not to be disclosed to any party except those employees of the producer who have a need to know, and such employees must be bound by a confidentiality agreement with the producer.
- If the producer determines the script is suitable for development, the parties will commence negotiations in that regard.
Don't let unscrupulous producers rip off your story ideas. Get a signed Script Nondisclosure Agreement.
