The side bar to the left has a copy of the notice which appears on the main caution page. It is unfortunate that Mr. Waxman did not read this before sending such a vague and harsh letter.

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. I have invited Mr. Waxman to join with inventors. Read my reply to Waxman here.

Well, Mr. Waxman sent several more emails, the links follow:

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.

The facts as I understand them follow. If there are any errors I urge Robert N. Waxman to point them out to me and I will promptly correct them.

Mr. Waxman was named as a defendant in the FTC's Project Mousetrap. FTC Project Mousetrap - FTC-9811. This was the basis of listing him on the caution pages.

I note that Mr. Waxman's letter did not address the issue of rather or not he profited in any way from the the operations listed in the FTC press release below.

Defendants named in the FTC cases are:

  • International Product Design, Inc., The Innovation Center, Inc., and the National Idea Center, Inc., all of which were headquartered in Washington, D.C. and preceded the following four firms: American Invention Associates, Inc. headquartered in Miami, Florida; Invention Consultants, USA, Inc. of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; New Products of America, Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia; International Licensing Corporation, Inc. of Reston, Virginia; and Azure Communications, Inc., of Reston, Virginia, doing business as London Communications, Inc. and which is the corporate headquarters of the four successor firms; and officers of one or more of the companies Robert N. Waxman, Peter Doran, Darrell Mormando, Julian Gumpel and Greg Wilson;
