inventors beware

writers beware, inventors beware, just... you know... beware. The internet is an amazing place.

Finally got off my ass and did a minimal amount of investigation. The reason Davison Design & Development (etc, etc, etc) comes across as so honest and up-front in their marketing materials? Court order. If they can't be honest on they're own, fuck that.

Found some great material. Sure, it's going to take more up-front work, but that's the way it should be, really. Hah.

Here's a great FAQ -- http://www.asktheinventors.com/faq.htm

and another great resource -- http://www.inventored.org/caution/extreme/

If you have to sue them first
Yeah, I wouldn't trust them either.

Sheesh.

(Don't know what you've invented, or I missed that post -- oops!).

But companies whose default policy is lying? Bad bad bad.

Re: If you have to sue them first
I've been cagey on the subject of what I've invented. There's three things (or maybe just two, as I can only seem to remember two of them, ever) I've got in mind, both relatively simple, material objects.

I need to detail them, maybe try out a few prototypes, ideally make a journal of all of that, and then drop $250 on a professional to do a patent search on one or the other.

Be very wary of soliciting help from an outside source for your inventions. Davison Design & Development are case in point.

Always patent it first before approaching anyone with the idea. Hiring a patent attorney is not all that much as compared to being ripped off either from the idea or limiting your participation in the proceeds. Heh, though I guess you should be wary of them too, eh?
