    Dear Mr. Miller:

    Thank you for your reply.  As far as showing and selling my product to the public, I'm mainly concerned someone will go home and make one for themselves.  But, I know, if I get out there and sell these things, I will be the original and get a share of the market before anyone else.

    My contact is not within driving distance;  how can I approach him long distance?  What should I say/write to him?

    I know I at least need to get him to sign an NDA before I show him my product.

    Regards,

    Amy

    Hello.  I have a working prototype for a fashion accessory.  As is, my product is not patentable.  I want to take the next step to bring the product to market, but I'm stuck.

    Should I wear my accessory in public, garnering opinions, and have some product with me for people to purchase?

    I also have the name of a person who works at a company where my product could be a part of their product line.  How should I approach/contact this person?

    Any information about this situation will be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Amy
