Now that you know what is really needed for China, you can see why the Western-style NDA agreements are far from what is needed to protect your intellectual property from China. If I were you, I would consider getting your product manufactured elsewhere as soon as possible, and we can also help you and make sure that you will prevent this IP theft from happening again in the country where you are going to manufacture your product.
