Ok, I know that there is a lot of manufacturing going on overseas. A company such as the one that I am trying to get off the ground will most likely have to outsource the manufacturing of my product to a company outside the U.S. (I would gladly have someone in the U.S. that could produce the plastic pieces that I need if they could do it and make it cost effective for me.)
What is stopping the company that I choose from selling the pieces to a competitor? A lot of the pieces are not original ideas and are unlicensed.
If the company makes them for me, can I secure the pieces that they make to only be sold to me?
