Why Startups should be filing i-DEPOT's
Technical startups are very careful about the information they share with others, and with good reason - they have a lot to lose if someone else copies their latest innovations or trade secrets.
But it is not practical to keep everything secret - ideas only become valuable when they have been discussed, debated, tested, evaluated and improved through interactions with others.
i-DEPOT's can help with the balance, allowing more control over how you distribute confidential information, both internally and externally.
IP law is very complex, so it is only possible to give very general instructions here. Consult Fireball Patents if in doubt about a particular case, or if you need more information.
