Update: Innovation Direct™ makes contact with inventor of personal accessory that is subject of interest from Texas-based manufacturer; conference call may be scheduled for Monday…

Good afternoon, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our first update for a Friday. Earlier this morning, the Innovation Direct™ representative managing the interest being shown in a personal accessory from the Innovation Direct™ roster by a Texas-based company received a return telephone call from the inventor of the product idea. Innovation Direct™ had attempted to contact the inventor for the past couple of weeks in order to address inquiries that the manufacturer had made about the detailed design information they’d received access to. We had most recently reported on this situation in a July 7th entry (“Update: Innovation Direct™ receives questions regarding personal accessory’s functionality from Texas-based company after website review; conference call with inventor to potentially be scheduled…“).

The inventor did not readily have responses to the exact questions about the product design that the manufacturer posed, but did state he would work on thinking those matters out over the next few days. The possibility of a conference call with the manufacturer was raised, and an attempt has been made to set up such a conversation for this coming Monday, July 21st. An e-mail proposing the telephone meeting has already been sent to the company contact.

We will continue to keep you updated on this developing situation, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Stay with us!
