I'm a computer science student and have had an idea for a website for a while. Up until now, I haven't told anyone about it(even my family and girlfriend). Anyways, I decided to tell a friend of mine and his brother and we started working on it last week.
I was originally planning to have them sign an agreement reserving the idea as mine and all that good stuff that I'm sure happens all the time in start ups. I have three main questions:
- Is there a generic contract for these purposes somewhere on the internet.
- I also want to know if there are any other things I should worry about since I have already told them the idea before having them sign any contract. They seem like good guys but all three of us see a lot of potential in the idea so there's always that fear in the back of my mind that they could run off with it.
- Also, would I establish myself as the leader/CEO/president/head partner of this start up at this point? Or is it assumed that way, or does that happen later on down the road?
Thanks in advance,
