WHEREAS I possess a bright idea that I am choosing to disclose to you, The Advisor, with the mutual understanding that you are my friend and that you will not screw me. Manners of screwing include, but are not limited to: Adapting some or all of The Idea for your own purposes unless I say you can. Choosing to share some or all of The Idea with those who are not bound to this agreement. Failing to do your best to protect The Idea. This is a "warm blanket" agreement with which, by requesting your agreement to it, I am helping myself sleep at night by placing a small amount of formality on the sharing of The Idea. I believe The Idea will only improve as a result of having solicited your honest and clear feedback. Term The term of this agreement shall continue until I or someone I authorize makes The Idea public. Breach This agreement may possibly have some amount of legal binding. However, it is likely that upon breach or violation of the agreement, I will do no more than any of the following: Curse you under my breath. Publicly disclose the manner of your screw-i-tude. Write about your transgressions in ALL CAPS. No longer consider you a person with whom I can share my ideas. Sharing Sharing of some or all of The Idea with third parties may occur provided that you have cleared this with me and the third parties agree to the principles of the FriendDA. Termination Termination of this FriendDA can be executed by either party, but don't be a douche. You are acknowledging and agreeing to this disclosure by reading it. If you find any part of this agreement uncomfortable or confusing, don't sweat it. We'll talk about something else.
