I'd ask what was particularly offensive about this NDA, but NDAs
normally prevent you from discussing the contents of the NDAs with
people not covered by it...

I hate them, but we have to use them sometimes.  At least we have two
strengths of NDA: mild and very specific; or the "you say anything and
we own you and your little dog too".  I only recall using the latter
type once.

If anyone has pointers or suggestions on how to safely conduct the
sort of business transactions usually covered by NDAs without using
them, I'd love to hear them.


Do you need advice about the Internet or particular net services?  Why
not talk to my employers?  See http://www.luminas.co.uk/ for details.
