Update: Innovation Direct™ receives response to Innovation Direct To Industry™ e-mail from Colorado-based ShopTV; company willing to review inventions under a policy of non-confidentiality…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, chiming in with our latest report. Earlier Thursday, Innovation Direct™ received a response from Electronic Retailing Association member company ShopTV to an Innovation Direct To Industry™ e-mail. ShopTV had been included in the batch of companies that had been contacted in our campaign of July 22nd (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1072).
In their response, the company representative emphasized that they would be interested in taking a look at product ideas under a policy of non-confidentiality, which means that Innovation Direct™ will only be able to share information with them on concepts that are patented, patent pending, or provisionally patented. The gentleman also confirmed that they did not require the concepts submitted to them have prototypes.
We will continue to update you on any developments that occur with ShopTV, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Check in frequently!
