FELLOW INVENTORS: Please read this before proceeding with your invention.
King’s Product Development has bitten the inventors bullet for the last time. I, Claude W King, personally make this plea with you, Do not proceed with your invention(s) until you research and learn the rules of inventing, patents, manufacturing and selling.
If you have any interest in inventions or know anyone who does, please forward this to them, tell them about this article. Please do whatever it takes to get them to read this article!
True scenario, you as the inventor have come up with a great idea. You study about it and attempt to make a prototype to make your own task more proficient. As time goes on you make an improvement or two. You have heard about keeping good records and witnessing, you have your project notarized and you put that paperwork away for safe keeping. Summer comes on and family activities and residence chores do not allow you the means to work on your inventions. As winter comes, time allows more effort toward perfecting and selling your invention. Your are working in your garage or workshop with diligent ambitions of the money rolling in from this widget. The TV infomercial is advertising your widget. You freak out and observe, the widget advertised is exactly the same as yours.
After some research you discover that some one stopped by and saw your widget in your garage and patented it. You are steaming and determined to recover what is rightfully yours. You strain the family budget and take the case to court. The judge says, you did not work on this invention all summer, that serves as abandonment. The legal rights goes to the thief that took your invention. As if that is not enough, the multi-million dollar company now promoting your invention then sues you for their cost of court expenses and lost income while the product sales was halted. You as the true inventor. are now most likely bankrupt.
Does this example scare you? True scenario but the public does not hear about these events. This is just one of the many corrupt violations of the patent system we learned recently. No this did not happen to Kings Product Development. Although we have experienced many of the unethical practices of the marketing world, we were fortunate to avoid this one and some others by researching for better ideas.
The courts have added diligence, concealment, suspension, and who knows what other practices that deviate from the intended idea of the program.
Fortunately we bought a program from Inventors Assistance Here is the beginning of the experience.
As of our phone conversation 2008 August 29, Ron explained the concept of recording and logging an invention in the view of a patent judge. I respect Ron’s experience in the field of inventions.
America recognizes ownership of an invention by the first to invent not the first to patent. Ron suggest and instructs the proper use of a laboratory notebook to prove the origin of an invention.
All of us have heard of the concept, explain in writing, record and notarize information about our invention, seal it in an envelope and mail it to ourselves, unopened as proof of the date of conception. File this away in a safe place and you have proof of the date of invention.
Ron says that a judge will look at this as not acceptable. The new concept of an invention includes a continuous process toward marketing it to the public. Ron says that a patent judge will need to see continuous progress on the invention to the tune of a couple of entries in a log book per month.
An inactive period of time after logging your invention without processing toward marketing to the public will label this invention as abandoned and will void all ownership to this invention.
If you are bothered that Inventors Assistance might high pressure you into a sale, then contact us here at KPD, Phone 812-854-9946, email@example.com and we will attempt to explain our experience and then we will refer you to Ron at Inventors Assistance. The important factor here is that you as an inventor LEARN THE RULES BEFORE GOING ANY FARTHER. Definitely, do not file for a patent until you have learned the rules.
