I signed a NDE (non-disclosure agreement) with my former record company and regretted it. At the time I was pressured into it by my lawyer who told me it was normal procedure and I had to do it if I wanted to settle. But I regret being unable to warn young musicans of the pitfalls of signing with a record label. I vowed never to sign another one.

Years later after winning my Gearslutz lawsuit, I was presented with another one. This time I refused. The refusal cost me about 10 grand. But I do not regret it. It's a matter of principle.

Non-disclosure agreements are evil and should be banned unless in exceptional cases. In short they are the modern way which dodgy people get away with anything. Throughout my harrowing Gearslutz lawsuit I wondered why there was so little information available on the net or anywhere.

The answer? It is due to the proliferation and abuse of NDE's.
THIS is why there is so little information about the law. Thus it is blindingly difficult for the common person to deal with a lawsuit on their own. You wanna make the world a better place? Start with reforming the legal system.
