Unsolicited Idea Acknowledgement Agreement (For Company)

When an individual or a group of people contacts a company or organization and present their unique idea in the meeting knowing that the company didn’t contact them or asked to present this idea and they are doing without any demand, it is known as unsolicited idea. In simple words, when you approach a company with a unique idea without their demand, you present an unsolicited idea.

Introduction to the Unsolicited Idea Acknowledgement:

When a company receives an unsolicited idea by an individual or a group of people without any prior demand, it is important for the company to acknowledge the idea and the meeting they had with the idea presenter(s). This is important in order to avoid any future complications or lawsuits against the company by the idea presenters. In order to make sure that the people who presented the idea are appreciated at the company and the organization has listened to their idea and they all have decided mutually either to drop the idea at the meeting or proceed with it, the company is required to prepare a legal document know as the unsolicited idea acknowledgement. This document proves that the idea presenters approached the company without any prior demand from the company itself and after they presented the idea and the organization decided to proceed with the idea, they take full responsibility of any liability that might come with the idea i.e. duplicity, plagiarism or copy right law suit.
