Should You Sign a No Compete for PDR Training?

Originally, non compete agreements were designed to protect a business from former employee competition. They are presented at time of hiring, often as a condition of employment.
The intention of a non compete is not evil, but in the hands of aggressive business owners and their attorneys, they sometimes cross a line.
Having both fought one in court and used one later with my own employees, I have some idea what makes one good or bad.

Fairness is the key. But what makes a non compete a fair agreement?
Once signed, how and why do they get abused? Listen to hear the story of one court battle and all the business wrangling that went along with it.
