Licensing your product or idea–how do you know if it’s right for you?

Stephen Key, an expert in inventing and  licensing, and co-founder of InventRight, provides some basics in licensing to consider if it’s something that might be interesting to pursue.



The other InventRight co-founder, Andrew Krauss, is also the President of one of the largest and most successful inventor groups in the nation, Inventors Alliance, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Andrew has been featured on NPR, and was asked by the Obama transition team to advise them on potential changes that should be made at the US Patent & Trademark Office to better serve independent Inventors.

About Robin Barr

I was born in New Jersey, and when I was 3, my parents moved to Southern CA where I've lived since in Covina, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, Laguna Niguel and now Mission Viejo. I love dogs and cats and compassionate about all living creatures. What do I do for a living? I invent problem solvers. Have you seen Cold Sores Begone™ or Canker Sores Begone™ in health food stores or online? Mine. I like using stuff that won’t kill me later so both remedies are non-toxic, safe enough for small children, and topical (I don't swallow pills easily). If you want to prevent a cold sore from materializing when you feel the early tingle symptom, apply a few drops of Cold Sores Begone™. Done. If you're plagued with those painful ulcerations inside the mouth (canker sores), apply a few drops of Canker Sores Begone™a few times a day, and it should disappear in 2-3 days. I was elated when PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH magazines told the world my two products work as promised. Afterall, I'm just an accidental entrepreneur. Read the circumstances of how I came to be a small business owner here, scrolling down to the paragraph header that starts with "If you're curious...". Everything above it is a repeat of this bio.
