I'll let you guys know how this turns out.
For someone who has never been invited to something that has required me to sign a NDA, what are usually the penalties for breaking one when you're just a normal consumer? I understand that it's different from case to case, but are there usually any actual sanctions or does it go by the honor system?
I just can't understand how companies can expect enough users to uphold a NDA to make it worth it if there aren't any real sanctions.
@amyggen: Even if there aren't explicit sanctions, it's still pretty scummy to break NDAs. It can seem harmless (or even helpful), but a heck of a lot of people count on that information coming out on their own terms. If companies thought this stuff was ready for the public, there wouldn't be an NDA.
@bwheeeler: Don't get me wrong, I understand why they're there and why you shouldn't break them. I was just curious as to what, if anything, happened if you broke one of these. With probably thousands invited to something like this I can't see much staying secret for long.
Sorry bro. :-(
