Update: Innovation Direct™ places call to SC Johnson Company about cleaning accessory as requested; submission packet to be mailed…

Greetings, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, chiming in with a quick update on a situation we’d just reported about in an entry yesterday (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1204). Earlier Thursday, at the request of the inventor of a cleaning accessory from our roster, a Innovation Direct™ representative placed a call to SC Johnson Company to inquire about their invention submission policies. After speaking with an SC Johnson representative, it was learned that the company will only review patent pending or patented inventions, and that all invention information must be presented utilizing a submission packet that they will mail to Innovation Direct™.

The aforementioned cleaning accessory is in patent pending status, meaning that there will not be any conflict with  eventually submitting information about it to SC Johnson. As we’d mentioned previously, we are enthused about the idea of having an established and successful company such as SC Johnson evaluate the idea and will continue to update you as appropriate here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Join us often!
