I have a friend desperately trying to get some books out of contract with a publisher. The publisher wants a non-disclosure agreement about the tiff between them in order to release the books.
There's a five figure fine for breaking that non-disclosure, is that normal?
Is it normal to require a non-disclosure agreement in this kind of case?
When does a non-disclosure clause go into effect? What if the business has already been disclosed to a few people?
I have of course, directed the friend to a state attorney for the arts office, but that might take some time to get together, pending that does anyone have any anecdotal orpersonal experience advice for this?
