Patent Services USA Director Warns Inventors About Protecting Their Intellectual Property

In Scams on August 23, 2017 at 2:48 am

Warning Signs for New Inventors by Director of Patent Services USA

Gifted inventors with innovative products ideas must implement crucial but simple steps in order to protect their ideas from theft, or from being released prematurely into the public domain, thereby losing the ability to secure patent protection. The director of Patent Services USA is sharing his tips.

Be very careful is choosing a Patent attorney, as there are many “patent mills” that seek out excited inventors who are not fully informed on the pitfalls and risks associated with patent law, and promise the world, and yet cannot necessarily deliver.

When the begin receiving a flood of calls and emails from patent consultants seeking to sell you their services, be sure to be on the look out for some common warning signs.

The promises made by these businesses usually include lots of flowery words, and big promises, some of the following promises can be indicators of red-flag operations:

Promise 1.
Comprehensive Patent Searches for a very low cost.

FACT:
Patent Searches should always be conducted by a bona fide and registered Patent Attorney, whose personal name and contact information must be shared with you as per USPTO Ethic Rules. Beyond the research they should offer you a patentability opinion about their findings and how it relates to your budding idea. There is a significant difference between classification searches and a thorough legal patent search. Don’t let anyone confuse the two or claim they have the same value, it just doesn’t cut it.

Plus, According to the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), hiring a patent attorney to perform a search with patentability opinion can cost an average of $2,000.

QUESTIONS:

  1. Will this patent search include a legal patentability opinion specific to my innovation?
  2. Which patent attorney in your network is conducting the search?
  3. How can you justify the stark difference from AIPLA quotes for a patent search with a legal patentability opinion and yours?

2. Offers of 3D graphics, patent drawings and other supportive materials in stages

FACT:
To make an informed discussion about the potential of your innovation it is important to lay a strong foundation and supportive content such as independent market research, graphics and detailed documentation of your product is crucial to that foundation. In addition, it can empower you with a full scope of your idea all at once and not in minor stages.

QUESTIONS:How much time between each stage, what are they and why?

  1. How much time between each stage, what are they and why?
  2. What are the costs for these different stages and how will this affect my ability to begin the drafting of my patent application?
  3. Is there a cost after my filing for separate marketing services?

3. Prices that are noted with an * or do not clarify exact patent-pending protection

FACT:
Numbers will be thrown around as you speak to varied companies but it’s important to keep in mind the service you are receiving for your investment. There is no one-shop approach to developing intellectual property so there can’t be a one-price fits all for the services that support your intellectual property.

QUESTIONS:You have an asterisk (*) by your pricing what does that mean and what does this rate include exactly?

  1. You have an asterisk (*) by your pricing what does that mean and what does this rate include exactly?
  2. What type of patent protection will I have and how will the actions and execution of my application be handled?
  3. How did you come up with this pricing?

You probably scratched and received an instant $180,000.00 prize. But, the prize card instructs you to call a Malaysian phone number, this is just an elaborate, full colour SCAM to steal your identity. DO NOT GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION to these scammer/hackers!

Note, the scammers website was only created in may 2016 through an untraceable proxy domain registration service.

They even impersonate the Malaysian Police Service by placing a Police Seal on the envelope. As if the police would officially send out free Scratch & Win cards?!?!

STOCK SCAM? CHARIOT ASSET MANAGEMENT CHARIOTASSETMANAGEMENT.COM SolarWindow Technologies Stock

In Financial Scams on July 18, 2016 at 11:57 am

BEWARE: Chariot Asset Management Smells Bad Pitching “SolarWindow Technologies”

Chariot Asset Management SolarWindow Technologies Possible Scam

Chariot Asset Management SolarWindow Technologies Possible Scam

We have not yet concluded if Chariot Asset Management’s claims that it is authorized to sell stock in “SolarWindow Technologies” are true or false. But you are cautioned to do your homework. Just because their template emails link to all kinds of Yahoo finance boards, it does not mean they are legitimate.

Do you due diligence, contact Solar Wind DIRECTLY and ask if it is legitimate: SolarWind Contact Form

SOME CONCERNS:

  1. CHARIOTASSETMANAGEMENT.COM was only registered on May 2016
  2. The domain was registered through an anonymous offshore domain registration service (in Panama) that accepts CASH payments through the mail, so that website operators cannot be identified, and that does not respond to subpoenas.
  3. Why would a legitimate stock broker or investment agency use the same domain registration services and thousands of gambling, pornography and other illegal or questionable “businesses”?
