Bat Around Startup Ideas With Me

An interrogative sentence, “What would you do with $10,000 and 25 days?”

  1. Use forward-looking statements to address any expected future business and financial performance and financial condition. Why? Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. (That’s how it’s done in the real world).

  1. Refrain from revealing a “trade secret” constituting information, including a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique, or process, that: (1) Derives independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally known to the public or to other persons who can obtain economic value from its disclosure or use; and (2) Is the subject of efforts that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy.
  2. Understand copyright does not protect ideas, concepts, systems, or methods of doing something. A founder may express ideas in writing or drawings and claim copyright in a description, but be aware that copyright will not protect the idea itself.
