Say I have a photography app with some special features that are patentable. Actually, just say I have an "app", not even specifying that it's photography. I don't want to show this to potential employers, but at the same time I want to protect its IP. I'm wondering what I can do without filing a patent. They typically have you list your prior inventions, but just stating "Photography App" or just "Private application" is not good enough apparently. I am not sure what needs to be done, yet at the same time not explain any details. Maybe a non-disclosure agreement or something of that sort.
Part of the problem is, say I go an work at Flickr now. I wonder what happens to this patentability / protection. Now instead of Flickr (which is directly related), say I worked at StackExchange (which is software, but unrelated to photography). Say they then invent something that is similar to my app down the road. Wondering what this means.
