Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
hello. I cannot tell you whether this company is a scam (and neither can anyone else beyond what you may find based on a Google search), since there is no legal list or designation of "scam" companies. But I can tell you that most of the companies are scams in the sense that they take your money and rarely get results or provide any value, they just send out generic mailers and give you brochures etc. More importantly, if at all possible, you should never deal with such companies (or disclose your invention to anyone) until you have filed a patent application. If you have not done so, and have not met with a patent attorney, then that must be your first step....to meet with a patent attorney and see where you stand on protecting your invention. For less than the $8-10k
that this company is asking, you could get a utility patent application prepared and filed by a patent attorney. That should be your first priority before any thoughts of marketing, manufacturing etc. and without patent protection, the invention has little to no value.
