Hello guys,

I've noticed that there are some incredibly creative people around here. I thought it was probably a good idea to introduce you to a relatively new marketing invention, in which the person behind the very first idea of a campaign is paid like he should, which is not usually the case.

The website is BootB.com. Have a look :)

BootB is a website that gives talent, regardless of age or language, what they deserve. You could be the creator of the newest marketing campaign for Peugeot, Disney or Lego, for example! Needless to say, these huge companies pay very well. Anyone can sign up on the website, it's completely free. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask me!

Regards,

Richard

It appears to focus more on art, creativity and color over what I might term as invention (mechanical solutions, electric circuits, chemistry, etc.).

See 35 USC 101.

I read the agreement very quickly, these things tend to bore me. Everything that sounds good always has a catch!

I will give these other guys and gals time to read it and let them do the slamming. :wink:

I like to think that our community include out of the box thinkers and not just just core "inventors". Well, at least the broader site is about creative thinking in the broader sense.

Hey Matt,
How about reading the fine print and give us your take take on that? And, yes Michelle, I know there are some very multi-talented people that routinely visit I-Spot that would be very interested in something like this, as long as it is legit.

By "fine print", I assume you mean their "Legal Documents" such as Terms and Conditions.

I posted below some of the most telling excerpts for your concern. It's pretty much all boilerplate and very thorough. BTW, they also have a "forum selection clause" ;-). viewtopic.php?t=931&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30

Looks good on this end in general nothing blatantly unfair. Should you want a personal opinion, please ask.
