Update: Innovation Direct™ sends follow-up communication to Arizona-based manufacturer regarding automotive accessory; invention to be in patent pending status by next week…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with an update on a situation we had last reported on all the way back in an October 15th posting (“Update: Innovation Direct™ seeks update from Arizona-based manufacturer on auto accessory…“). Earlier Thursday, the Innovation Direct™ representative that has managed the advanced level of interest displayed by the company that was the subject of that entry in an automotive accessory from our roster sent a follow-up e-mail to his contact at the firm. There is some very long overdue feedback pending from the manufacturer regarding their ongoing evaluation of the invention for potential licensing.
This latest attempt to obtain an update was prompted by a telephone call our colleague received from the inventor earlier in the day on Thursday. The originator of the concept had wanted to relay the news that his invention would officially be in patent pending status with the United States Patent and Trademark Office as of next week, and he also wanted to know if we’d heard anything new from the company in recent times. Our representative explained to the inventor that our last communication had been a brief reply to our October 15th e-mail of last year, wherein the company contact had mentioned to us only that they were still interested and that because he was on his way to catch a plane, he’d have to get back to us with more details a few days later.
Therefore, the aforementioned follow-up correspondence was sent today in the hopes of obtaining some sort of definitive indication of what direction the company will move in with regards to this product idea. If and when we do receive a reply, the Innovation Direct™ readers will be the first to know. Check back often!
