A slow economy has not slowed inventions. Certainly not in the United States. The Patent And Trademark Office has been issuing record numbers of newly issued patents. In the United Sates manufacturers are busy building new customer bases across the globe.
Many inventors are considering how to get Design Patents. United Patent Research is a research and development firm that reviews inventions long before they reach the patent stage. Their goal is to protect valuable ideas and promote them to manufacturers. This is accomplished by networking with industrialists and manufacturers. Attending industrial tradeshows is crucial to their success. This is probably the most efficient way to promote a novel product.
An interested manufacturer may offer to purchase the rights to the new product. Most times however it is better to negotiate a licensing agreement. This means the inventor is paid royalties over the lifetime of the contract. This is how movie stars and recording artists are compensated.
