Professional inventors wish to help invention promotion companies do the best job possible. To that end we are collaborating with numerous State and Federal agencies to help invention promotion firms achieve their full potential. 

In the case of Davison and Associates, they have used what appear to be frivolous lawsuit to silence a dissatisfied customers.  Most businesses understand that delivering good service, delivering results, is the best way to create satisfied clients.  Conversely, the majority of businesses, at least those businesses which are reputable, understand that trying to silence dissatisfied clients with litigation is like pouring gas on a fire.  In the end, no business can prosper while using such tactics.

Wallet with money flying away It has been widely reported that many companies whose services are of questionable value - or even outright fraud - threaten to sue, and in some cases even threaten to hurt, those who speak out about the problem.  A warning for those who would try to quell free speech in the inventor community.  I work extensively with many journalists and other media.  Any threats, to sue or otherwise, will be promptly passed to the media.  This will get the questionable party much more publicity than this page alone does.

Any company who actually brings a SLAPP suit will be counter sued, and all appropriate information gleaned in discovery will be passed to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
