Can I get in trouble for sharing code of a past project?

I was contributing to a github project months ago and I have left the project. The repo was not created by me. Now I’m asked to sign an agreement (2 months after I left) saying that I won’t share the code in 3rd parties for the same business idea. I don’t have any intentions to share anything but can I get in trouble even if I share the code I wrote (40% was written by me)?

The Github project was unlicensed (which means all rights reserved)

:wave: Welcome!

Glad to have you here but this sounds like you need legal (contract/intellectual property) advice, and we are not able to provide that.

I would advise you look for a legal expert in your jurisdiction who might be able to sort through this for you.

Alright understood thank you! I posted on Law Stack Exchange as well.
