don't get me wrong, i'm not endorsing anyone. I did use their services at a mininum and had great & pleasant experience, after using a patent attorney without success. I'm not a "big fan" but simply a satisfied customer. I went to a patent attorney after reading all the negative posts about invention companies. I just wanted people to not to be too quick to judge these invention companies. You might just find a good one. Some inventors tend to exaggerate their experiences to make things sound worse than they are, or worse, make false claims and statements. I fell for these posts and went to a patent attorney and lost money.
I am, however, endorsing doing your research, like i said in my original post. Don't give anyone money until you do a through research. i found lawsuits filed by FTC on scam companies like Davison, aka Invention Land, ISC and others. i went to invention Home after i did my homework due to their clean record with reputable resources such as BBB (and not biased posts by people). You are right though, you never know who the poster of forums are. They might be certain companies in disguise.
A lot of my statements are generalized statements, and it doessn't pertain to any company in particular, as in the first paragraph of my original statment. Anyone would generally agree that any marketing company would want to maximize your invention's royalty potential so they can take a chunk out of your royalties.
I invented a "smart visor" that i can't discuss details since it's in the process of marketing. it's my pride and joy! i will follow with post when i get a licensing deal!
