Do people really steal invention ideas?


I sometimes see questions on forums like Quora about how to stop people stealing your invention idea. Does this happen so often in professional experience? Can it really be stopped by having signed NDA or other agreement?

Yes, it does happen. An NDA doesn't necessarily stop it, but it allows you to take action if it happens. My main career now is as a consultant and expert witness in IP cases where I see inventions stolen. I've also had my own ideas and inventions stolen, but my trademarks and patents have allowed me to get compensation for the thefts.
