Innovation Direct™ inventor’s plumbing accessory subject of interest from Ohio-based Waxman Consumer Group…
Good afternoon, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our latest report. Earlier Thursday, Innovation Direct™ received communication from Ohio-based Waxman Consumer Group that was sent in response to preliminary, non-confidential information the company had been sent about a plumbing accessory from our roster. The documents sent were the company’s conditions for submitting inventions and ideas to them.
Innovation Direct™ reviewed the agreement, which essentially emphasized, among other things, that the company would not agree to review product ideas under confidentiality. However, since the invention is the subject of a granted patent, this will not be an issue. The Innovation Direct™ representative managing the situation contacted the inventor, who agreed to review and sign the document so that it could be returned to the manufacturer. Once this has been completed, Innovation Direct™ will be able to provide Waxman with access to all of the detailed design information available about the concept.
