    Hi,

    is it necessary to submit own non-disclosure agreement or something of this legal stuff when submitting game to publishers/portals? i guess it's protection on one's side, but is it a norm?

    No they aren't standard, infact a lot of game sites probably couldn't be bothered to sign one just to see a game. Real gets 100s of submissions per week and the publish only one or two of these. Can you imagine if they spent their time doing the paperwork for each of these, even though most would be junk? Anyway, unless the game is not finished why do you need one?

    And, is your idea really that amazing that they would want to clone it? Even if it is amazing I doubt anyone would want to clone it until they find out how well it sells first.
