An NDA is at the opposite extreme from a patent license, in terms of average value (low) and frequency (high). Textually, it is not that much different. Here is one form of outline (taxonomy). Note that we’ve broken out the “backend,” applicable across many, many agreements:

Conf._Sec.S=

  1. {Purpose._Sec}
  2. {Conf._Sec}
  3. {IP._Sec}
  4. {Unfair._Sec}
  5. {Disclaim._Sec}
  6. {BackEnd._Sec.S}

BackEnd._Sec.S=

  1. {Term._Sec}
  2. {Dispute._Sec}
  3. {Remedy._Sec}
  4. {Misc._Sec}
