People in all walks of life usually take
the First Amendment for granted. The inventor community
is no exception.
The founder of InventorEd, Ronald J.
Riley, places great value on First Amendment rights and
for that reason jumped into the battle between grandma
Tibbetts and multinational CPC/Bestfoods by creating www.Skippy-SCAM.org.
The Skippy case was a major victory for truth &
justice, and defense of the First Amendment.
The invention promotion industry has not
been very happy that the independent inventor community
has been actively discouraging novice inventors from
using their services. From time to time a number of
invention promoters have tried to intimidate those who
speak out by threatening to sue them. Such suits are
commonly called SLAPP suits.
The biggest invention promoter is a
company named Invention Submission Corporation (ISC). ISC
stands out as the most aggressive in trying to stop
people from discussing their rather dismal success rate
of marketing inventions. In addition to threatening to
sue inventors ISC has brought suites which silenced
critics in both the United Kingdom and the United States.
