I invented a product in 2000 and submitted it to one of these invention submission companies in 2000. Paid money for some docs and press releases and such. Filed a disclosure doc with trademark office which only last 2 years. I submitted my idea to several BIG name companies one being SONY and years later I find my exact product designed my way in their company website. Now I know I did not file a patent and I probably was scammed by the invention company, but like I said I submitted to Sony and now they have my product. Does anyone know a lawyer who might take my case for a standard 33% without a retainer. Ethically I did not want to sue, but if people can get away suing companies and making money for ridiculous things I figure I had a shot at atleast an out of court settlement for something real that I can prove.
I poured my life savings into this project only for the little guy to lose. Can anyone out here help the little guy for once??? email me at email@example.com if you can.
