Update: Innovation Direct™ takes first step towards contacting new United Football League about sporting goods accessory…
Good evening, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking back in one final time for a very busy Friday. Late this afternoon, the Innovation Direct™ representative that managed the long-standing interest in a sporting goods accessory from an India-based manufacturer, which is now officially terminated, sent an e-mail regarding the product to an individual with close ties to the new United Football League, a professional outdoor football league set to officially kick off in October 2009. This is the same invention we had just reported on in one of today’s earlier postings (“Update: Innovation Direct™ sends e-mail to India-based sporting goods manufacturer notifying them of inventor’s intentions to seek other licensees…“).
In his correspondence, our colleague inquired as to whether or not the league had any licensees for their brand as of yet, particularly in the equipment category. The idea is to potentially submit information about the invention to the league and/or any of the official licensees of their brand. The concept, which could best be labeled as a football instructional accessory, is the brainchild of a former college football player and assistant coach, a fact that we hope will lend the product idea extra credibility with a professional sports league.
We will certainly update you further on this exciting development as warranted, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Make our space a frequent stop!
