Invention Promoters/Promotion Firms

Before Making Commitments To Invention Promoters/Promotion Firms:

You should check on the reputation of invention promoters/promotion firms before making any commitments. Remember, not all invention promoters/promotion firms are legitimate or acting with your best interests in mind. It's best to be wary of any firm that over promises the likelihood of commercial success of your proposed invention and asks for combined fees based on both marketing and patenting your proposed invention. If you are thinking about using one of these firms, ask for references from their current clients and check the firm's reputation by:

*Looking for complaints listed on the United States Patent & Trademark Office website at http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/com/iip/complaints.htm.
*Check with the Better Business Bureau
*Check with the Chamber of Commerce
*Check the firm with search engines (Google, Yahoo, etc.)

It is prudent to consult with a registered patent attorney. Check with a patent attorney about invention promoter/promotion firms. You may also wish to check on such firms using the following websites:

WWW.USPTO.GOV

WWW.BBB.COM

WWW.GOOGLE.COM

WWW.YAHOO.COM
