A client of ours recently asked us to sign their standard NDA. We also deal with many of their competitors. We have not signed any NDA's before. They want us to sign the NDA so that they can share additional information with us that may help us help them better. We have made changes to the NDA and set back to them. The main change being the state in which any litigation would take place. Since we're a small company, having to travel to fight litigation would cripple us. Obviously, we don't want to be jerks and we want to do good business with these guys, but they are a much much larger company and would eat us for lunch should any litigation occur.
a) should we even sign the NDA?
b) is it ridiculous of us to seek changes to the NDA?
