POST QUESTIONS and ask for advice from your fellow inventors here. Fellow inventors... unite and takeover.

I'm going to start this Post so that those inventors or newbies who have inventing questions can ask them here and have their fellow inventors give them a little advice. Please do not post AI comments here. Save it for the other section. Thanks.

We make all but 1 part for our guitar ourselves. We have knowledge & background of CNC Machining & 3D Modeling, Casting, and various other talents. If anyone is looking for some advice in any of these fields, please feel free to contact us.

We have exchanged literature with some of our fellow inventors. We will distribute for each other at the proper venues. (ie. We will take Fishing stuff to Fishing & outdoors stores in our area, He will take our Music stuff to Music Stores in his area, etc.)

We are in this together, and we love to help others.

I know you are not concerned about the gag order, but your link could hurt the rest of us. They could try to hit us all with the 5 Mil. for just linking to your web site. The members of this blog want to help each other & move forward with out the TV Show. Your link could jeperdize that. But that's up to the Administrator.

Has anyone tried to obtain a grant to start their process?

No, we haven't applied for a grant, but started a LLC and sold shares of the company to afford patenting.

Any plans for RSS on this site?

Tell me how to do it and I will. I'm still learning this blog thing. But I also now have a little side help. Very soon, hopefully before launch of the show, this site will look MUCH better and have more robust content. I'm trying to adapt it to something new. A sort of Blog/Forum/Website. Blogorumite? Hmmm....

Anyway, keep a watch. And if you have some advice on RSS feeds, let me know. thanks.

I HAVE A U.S. PATENT BUT FAILED TO PURSUE AN INTERNATIONAL PATENT.

THE REASON I DID NOT PURSUE THE INTERNATIONAL PATENT: SALES IN THE THE U.S. SHOULD CREATE ENOUGH $$$, SO WHY WORRY WITH THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET.

WAS THIS A MAJOR MISTAKE? ALSO, TRYING TO CONTROL THE EUROPEAN/ASIAN MARKET WOULD SEEM IMPOSSIBLE.

Anonymous,

I'm dealing with the same concern you raised in this blog regarding US only patents while forgoing international based patents. I don't know your product nor it's marketability factors for international sales, but if it's a viable product worth earning money overseas, you may want to jointly file patents in for example, Europe (assuming this is where you're targeting) and the US, having the prior art searches and evaluation going through the European patent office first then submitted to the US patent office after. The added cost for doing this approx $5K above and beyond the US only patent. I'm over simplying this process and check with your PA who specializes in International Patent Law, but doing this allows you to strategically pour your resources (financial, slaes and marketing, licensing, manufacturing etc) into the US market first, earn your income prepped for the issuing of the European patent. At which time, you would hopefully be able to select which of the European markets you choose to protect (largest European markets are U.K, Germany, France, Italy, Spain). It costs additional money to file seperately in each of those markets AFTER you gain an approved European patent. By that time, you may have found a distributor or manufacturing licensee to pay for the cost of filing in each European country. Again, I'm not the expert but am currently making these decisions and have paid a competant Attorney big bucks for some basic advice you're getting for free :-) China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Japan each have their own Patent Laws and IP filing systems. China and Taiwan are notably the worst for infringement and prosecution of legitamate Patents in those countries. I have a patent that I have literally given over to a company in Taiwan in exchange for cheap manufacturing costs and an "honor" system that they will not manufacture my invention in Europeor the US, but they can protect and file the invention as their product in China and Taiwan markets only. I'm not suggesting that you do the same as I have done as it still guarantees nothing, but it helps me feel a little more comfortable if I were to take business away from this manufacturer after we were able to look each other in the eye and create this deal. Hope this helps, too much info probably. - Spacecadet

Any recommendations for Asian manufacturers of injection plastic products who are easy to work with?

Asian manufacturers can be found in a magazine called "Global Resources". I'm sure you can use google to find their web site. Good luck!
