FAQs

Q1. What is a Patent? 
A1. A Patent is a document giving ownership to an Invention preventing others mass producing without a Licence Agreement for which fees & royalties agreed in advance are paid. 
Patents are obtained bfiling a Patent Spec (Title, Pre-amble, Description, Claims, Abstract) & Drawings that comply with complex  protocols of the UK IPO – Intellectual Property Office and IPOs of other desirable countries.

Q2. I have a new invention idea, should I take out a Patent immediately?
A2. No! Not without an IoI Evaluation for Novel, Functional, Competitive & Commercial Viability.
Having your invention idea evaluated before you’ve taken out a patent avoids wasted expense & effort.
The Institute of Inventors evaluate inventions. If the invention has merit, we will suggest the best strategy to make money from your invention, which doesn’t always involve taking out a patent!

The IoI is the only body providing a Reliable Invention Evaluation Service – based on above.
The Patent Grant Success Rate for IoI prepared patents is 90%. For all others it is under 8%.

Patent Sales: The most formidable part of Inventing is selling or licencing a patent.

Q3. How do rogue patent attorneys use the “Confidentiality Rip-off Ploy” to bilk inventors?
A3. By advising inventor – “don’t tell anyone about invention, until we’ve filed a patent”.

The Patent Facts: Selling a piece of paper called a patent is the most difficult part of the invention process. If any inventor with only a patent offered a 99.9% share to anyone, it is unlikely he would be entertained for more than 30 seconds.

Patent Rogues – the True Facts
There are plenty of rogues – patent brokers & patent attorneys, using the ploy of “confidentiality” to take large sums off unsuspecting inventors. These rogues have not sold a single invention, nor are they capable of selling a breached confidentiality.

 

IoI are not invention brokers and do not accept shares of members’ inventions. 
Gifts of saisfaction for briliant IoI services are accepted  & welcome.
