NOTICE TO INVENTORS
PARTICIPATION HERE MAY BE CONSIDERED A "PUBLIC
DISCLOSURE" OF YOUR INVENTION, WHICH MAY
AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO OBTAIN A PATENT FOR YOUR
INVENTION.
INVENTORS SHOULD REFRAIN FROM DISCUSSING THEIR
INVENTIONS OR SHOWING THEIR MATERIAL
TO ANYONE OTHER THAN THE PRODUCERS AT THIS
AUDITION.

They do not tell you this until after you travel all the way down there, wait in line for hours and then get registered. When I was waiting in line AI was filming inventors in line asking "what is your invention" and saying "its all right were with American Inventor" to all who seemed hesitant about reveling their secret to all those around. They also told you to get your invention ready to show the judges when you were still out in the hall where everyone could see your invention. I kept my invention in a briefcase to comply with their rule they posted on the wall and showed my invention to 4 people - 1 judge, 2 assistants and 1 camera man but I do not think they were producers. They constantly advised people to act against their 1 rule and began to wonder if they tricked me in showing my material to someone other than the producers.

AI has potential but they have sold out to being stupid. We watch the show to see inventions as was advertised. They only show a handful of crazy ideas and they try to build suspense which takes up too much time. They showed people waiting in line more than the inventions. They should just cut from invention to invention and leave out all the walking up to the judges. Maybe next year they can change their ways and change the name to The Real American Inventor.

The secret to getting on the show is when you are waiting outside in line and the 1st camera you see filming the line comes close you must do whatever possible to get the camera crew to talk to you. You must revel your invention even though it goes against their rules which you havent even seen yet and tell everyone your invention. The only people the camera crew talked to near me in line was the cake slicer, tennis shoe dryer and the tea4U couple and they all got on TV.
