If you`re interested in working with an invention promotion firm, here`s information that can help you avoid making a costly mistake.
- The American Inventors Protection Act of 1999 gives you certain rights when dealing with invention promoters. Before an invention promoter can enter into a contract with you, it must disclose the following information about its business practices during the past five years:
- how many inventions it has evaluated,
- how many of those inventions got positive or negative evaluations,
- its total number of customers,
- how many of those customers received a net profit from the promoter`s services, and
- how many of those customers have licensed their inventions due to the promoter`s service
