How Inventors Can Avoid Scams, Traps and Raw Deals

Back in March 2009, I traveled to North Carolina to the Everyday Edisons studio to participate in the United Inventors Association filming of a 10 part mini-series that covers every stage in the patent to market process.  The series is about 5 hours in length and covers every aspect from how not to get scammed, to patents, prototypes, packaging, marketing, licensing and selling your invention for profit on your own.  The full educational mini-series is available only to inventors who join the UIA, but episode 1, titled Avoiding Scams, Traps and Raw Deals, is available for free to everyone. Steve Greenberg , the author of Gadget Nation and Emmy winning news reporter, conducts an interview with myself, Ron Reardon (UIA President and the President of the National Association of Patent Practitioners) and Louis Foreman (of Everyday Edisons and Inventors Digest).
