Non Disclosure Agreements (NDAs). Good or Bad?

We had some great chat yesterday over on Twitter about NDAs. 

Katherine Cory was concerned that it paints a picture of distrust and always restricts what she can show in her portfolio.

I'm not so bothered about the trust thing; especially with bigger clients as this is just how they expect to do things. If I get it from a smaller company I usually raise a wry eyebrow and explain to them that I'm not short of good ideas so don't need to steal theirs ;) 

Note: what happens if you were already thinking along the same lines as the client? I.e. you didn't know before you signed the NDA?

Portfolio is another issue of course. The NDAs I've signed have not stipulated portfolio and have been more about the IP. Agencies usually prohibit freelancers from talking about their work (+Hinkford Limited doesn't) - them's the breaks I'm afraid. Some freelancers charge extra where there work cannot be shown in their portfolio - perhaps consider that?

Note: I once contracted at an agency and helped build a broadband site for BT. I blogged about it and it ranked higher than the clients site for ages. They moaned but there was no agreement in place. Should have charged extra for SEO consultancy etc ;)

Kieran Masterton raised the dodgy legality of them in the eyes of the EU. NDas always seem pretty flimsy to me.

So, my take is that it is not necessarily a red flag to me; it's more of an amusement.


p.s. +Sean Johnson was involved with the chat and picked it up on the latest episode of +The Freelance Web podcast:
