Edison Nation - Be sure to read the contract

Posted by Mark Stadnyk on Monday, June 13, 2011, In : General Interest 
I believe that your email regarding the Edison Nation project is missing an important piece of information. They are not just seeking a "licensing agreement" with inventors. If you read the fine print you will discover that by submitting a product idea you are completely giving up the rights to your invention (Exhibit A, section 1A). That is far beyond a licensing agreement. I don't have a problem with granting an exclusive license to Edison Nation, but I certainly have a problem with handing...

World of Inventors Postponed

Posted by David Woods on Monday, March 14, 2011, In : Events 
The Wolrd of Inventors convention at Tampa Convention Center has been postponed indefinately.  Apparently there has not been sufficient activity on their website to warrant scheduling the event.  It has been explained to the organizer that they need to advertize in Inventor's Digest and provide more warning to our organizations to expect to be taken seriously.  They have not given up yet.  When they surface again let us give them the support they need.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a major inv...

Everyday Edisons Casting Call Revisited

Posted by David Woods on Monday, November 15, 2010, In : Events 

The earlier listing is a notice that Edison Nation is doing casting for their season 4 Everyday Edisons.  I reviewed their casting agreement and it is not the same as their regular agreements.  I am not an attorney and am not offering legal advice but I want to make sure you read and understand their agreement.  It appears to me they take assignment of your IP forever but only pay you royalties for 20 years.  That may be a good deal for you.  But they also maintain control of your IP for 5 ye...
