I would like to present it to a company that can use the product. I have drawings and even a protype that I personally made. I do not have start up capital to get a protype.

Does it have to be a patent or can it just be a copyright?

Another way is to get the company to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement and include a clause about them agreeing to ‘not do anything that would harm or prevent the success of the Inventor’ as I do. It’s free and has prevented me from having my ideas stolen. Cause I don’t know about you, but I don’t exactly have ten grand lying around to file an application for a patent (and then the money to hire someone to combat a large company’s expert legal team). During an innovation challenge a government official walked up to me and we discussed protecting the idea. He said patents were mostly a waste of time, and the best bet is to ‘make hay while the sun shines’. In my case, making hay was making disclosure agreements. Good luck!

Hi! Might be a stupid question, but whatever, here goes. If I have an idea that I believe can help a certain company in the cell phone market - in regards of advertising and marketing, so I don't think I would've been able to get a patent, even if I had that, what... 8000 dollars - how would I go about presenting that idea for the right person, could I like, hope for an employment at their advertising/marketing dept if the idea is good enough, am I guaranteed to get laughed at, or is my idea getting ripped off nevertheless? Assume it's a good idea and it could turn it around for a company that's losing its part of the cake on the global cell phone market.
Evan Carmichael (1 month ago)

I have a product design for something yoga related. Even though it can be easily replicated I still think I might be able to sell the design art to another yogi to have them take it over (as I am not well enough to do a lot of yoga with my health). I'd like to try and sell this concept + art. It's pretty basic but the art is gorgeous and it will make money. How should I proceed?

My experience on this is mixed. Tried sell my product idea to a large company in bay area; 1 year later- just as you say- found out they built the product themselves, while I raised seed fund for my own startup. I can't blame them. My advice: don't try sell idea only, consider making something more tangible first. Their product flopped, they iterated 3-times but never really understood the technology; luckily did file a patent, we keep selling the same product on amazon etc. and do 10x better. It is an uphill battle... Idea -> Market. You sure do need to #believe :) Love the work you're doing Evan, keep them coming!

Hi Evan... what do you think of Invention Help Company?
Joe Le (6 months ago)
Do Not go to InventHelp for help. The only thing they just fill the form for you to collect your money. I spend more than 20K for InventHelp in 1995. Nothing to get back. In another way I can say: They use the Law to cheating you. America in 2018 its Not America 1950, that's why I love to go back to the old way when I need Help!!!.

The video was good and the comments, the few that I read were good, but there is something missing. If you are able to find the main person, the decision maker, through contacts of your own, then you are one on one with this decision maker. The idea of 6 degrees of separation works. I spend my time and money on dong just that. When I get to the top, then I am pretty confident that I will not be reverse engineered. NDA's are also helpful, but they are rarely signed. On my last project I found the owner of the company I wanted to sell to though mutual friends. He was not about to do anything that would get back to his friends, so the deal was on the up and up, and everyone made money...and I am still involved in development and niche markets. If you can speak well, then spend time finding the right person to talk to , that is the way it is done, and generally without contracts, among the wealthy. It does work, but you have to be skilled when you get there, no babbling around, get to the point, and know what money they will make and the costs to do it. Remember also, they are not interested in SAVING money as much as they are interested in making it. Weird, but true.

If its an idea that touches a certain branch and companies of the same branch would love it. Then make a provisional patent, no more than 65 dollars, describe it good, and then go to a company of that business branch, and offer it to them with your provisional patent number, and tell them they got a week for buying your provisional patent or you will go to other corporations. You could be amazed how they will lose their ass after you, if its an idea that really interest them.

My late Missus and I developed a new dart game (completely by goofing around and accident), and built the prototype board with the game rules developed. I am about to build my first "regulation" prototype, and then would like to sell it to one of the huge game companies. How would I go about this without having them steal it and do their own while I'm driving back home from the meeting? It is copyrighted, but not officially filed.

HiredGun5. Hi, the big toy companies use toy brokers. Find one on the internet and they will evaluate it for you. (For a fee) That's the way it works.

hello.. Two inventions to serve two different purposes only the actual instrument happens to have turned out the exact same build and specs .... there's an existing product on the market that is made for its one specific use ...  but it is so perfect for what i am trying to build (for a different application) they might have just built my prototype for me 🙂.. what to do?
Sam k. If the Frisbee were still a valid patent you would not be able to use it as, say a kitchen utensil because you have not changed it's structure or usability as a flying disc.
Sam k. You need permission to use the existing product if it is a valid and protected patent(not expired)...which involves licensing from said patent holder.

Thanks Evan for the insight. I am preparing to pitch my idea to a big company and already have a final patent application that is undergoing examination. How does one determine the value of the idea as well as maintain percentage of the ownership?

In not an expert. In an engineering student myself, but can you prove it? Maybe use Youtube to build an audiences and then have them spread the word.

You need to build a prototype. If it works, apply for an international patent. Then make a youtube video detailing the system and make it go viral. Then those companies will be calling you.

I was trying to get my designs for a firearm adopted by a firearm manufacturer is six different companies the only one that replied was Smith and Weston and that was to tell me that they weren't going to have anything to do with it unless I could get a patent for it so I've been trying to figure out what's the easiest way to get a patent because I hear some of them can take up to 5 years

A Patent does not necessarily protect you as much as you might think. There are many different wats to get around a Patent especially when dealing with international companies. I agree that speed to market is critical, being first to market is incredibly important.

Evan, I've been watching your videos & I really appreciate them. Not all ideas are patentable though, right? What do I do if I have amazing ideas that are extremely valuable but probably not patentable? How do I approach, share & sell these ideas that are amazing but not patentable to big corporations? Thanks

Once told, an idea is gone! :) Can I afford to apply for a patent? Never! So, I'll keep everything to myself and die poor. It's better than having others get the credit and the money for my idea. Sooner or later someone will come up with the same idea, I know, it happened many times already. I learned to accept that. ... and if I had the money to apply for a patent, which idea should I pick? They might not all be good, but I'm beyond sure at least a few are worth millions. And a first attempt's success is crucial. But if... and if... Well, at least day dreaming is accessible to anyone.

lol  that was amazing and no you are not alone but  you need an a way out   I wish you the best and hope you reach your dreams but don't give up  you only need one success to make it  good luck
an8er (1 year ago)
Life is short, indeed. And rich guys are no better, you're right: which makes it even more ironic. Did you see that "Silly Bandz" owner? Made 300 millions... ... for what? Even my worst idea is better than that. I don't necessarily want to have what they have either. But I want a house. A car. I want to travel... No luxury, no 5 stars!, just travel. If I had that guy's 300 millions I would help intelligent kids coming from poor families to get an education and get far. As they deserve, as the society needs as well. I am one of those people who failed because my family was extremely poor, and the Romanian educational system was (and still is) a disaster. At 35 I took a Mensa test, wanting to know If I really am smart... or it's just my imagination, when being outraged by idiots around me myself. And now I am a Mensa member... which is of no use, btw. I have so much frustration added up whithin, and so many unshared ideas that I'm afraid I'll end up being an old man speaking by himself on the street. ... whatever! Maybe one day soon something will change.
Rodny Rodny (1 year ago)
life is short to each of us has his own challenges and obstacles I do respect your point of view and sure you it is your choice in the end    to me I have a government job so it don't pay well but I don't see rich guys are better I don't even want what they want all I need is to see my ideas work even if I don't get credit  I don't care we all going to die so why not see it for yourself  but as I said that only my opinion  it doesn't mean am right or you are wrong I do respect your views as I said but its wonderful to see ppl like you who have ideas   since some time I feel like am surrounded with idiots
an8er (1 year ago)
No offence whatsoever, and thanks for your advice. Well, I kind of see things differently. If I don't get anything out of it it's not worth it. If I was already in a position where most of my needs were met in the present, and my future was secure... yes!, I would've felt differently about it. ... but when you struggle to make it from one day to another having to take shitty jobs... and you see so many regular people driving nice cars, traveling... And on the news they show how rich dudes spend tens of thousands of euros for one champagne... For example, a guy recently paid 35,000 euros for a champagne bottle in a night club here, in Romania. Why should I share my ideas for free?... so that I keep being poor and others to buy more 35,000 euros champagnes? Fuck'em!...

Keep up the great work. You rock.

Is Patent Pending a good enough patent to pitch your idea to a company?
Randy Wiltse (1 year ago)
It is refereed to as a PPA Provisional Patent Application. It is an application which locks in your "first to file" rights. It grants you the right to use the phrase "patent pending" in any and all representations of your idea or product for one full year.. To properly answer your question it depends what your desires are. Hands down, licensing is the best way to get your product to market and see a profit If you have never worked 70 hour work weeks and built your own company from the ground up. A task that ends in failure more than 95% of the time regardless of the quality of idea or product. If licensing is your path which it probably should be, than a PPA is more than enough to get your idea in the right hands. Please remember this, it is key. Ideas are a dime a dozen, it is the task of executing that really counts. The very best way to see your idea go to market is to purchase the book "One simple idea" by Stephen Key. It is a great starting point to get educated by one of the best in the business. He also gives away for FREE right here on YouTube everything you need to know about doing it yourself step by step. His parent company makes their money by getting people to become students of licensing. It's a fair, hold your hand all the way through negotiations concept for those that have a few bucks and want the easy way in. Myself, I have and am still studying and practicing his teachings. Stephen and his team are honest, fun and on top of their game. Good Luck.

I have an idea I know will profit.. which is what the investors want to be sure of.. so , how do I get a patent if I'm dead broke!? I broke 11 bones and can't work.. I'm scared to present my idea BC it will be stolen...
Randy Wiltse (1 year ago)
For starters, Investors don't invest in ideas, they invest in companies with proven traction. Being scared of someone stealing your idea is as common as the cold. Believe me, it just doesn't happen as much as people think it does. You rarely ever need a full blown patent to protect yourself and a PPA (at $65 normally) is plenty to start shopping your idea. Believe it or not, you really don't even need that. Search: InventRightTV Enjoy the ride and good luck.

Hello Evan. I just got a patent for a new product in home improvement. Its the next Big thing. I have great drawings which explain in detail how it works but i do not have a protoype. Its very complex and it would be impossible for me to get one without spending a lot of money i dont have. Not sure if i want to present it to a company knowing that they could try to copy it. What should i do?
Evan Carmichael (1 year ago)
They can't just copy it if you have a patent protecting you. But you still need to find a way in to present the idea to them. #BTA461
