Frequently Asked Questions

No! Your membership allows you to attend meetings and become informed about developing your idea and securing your intellectual property.

Disclosure is not a problem if your idea is already protected. If it is not yet protected, documenting your disclosure in writing may make it easier to claim ownership of an idea. Also, different types of legal protection are available for different types of ideas.

There are several types of patents. There are also trademarks, service marks, copyrights and trade secrets. Protected ideas are called intellectual property. Inventors Network encourages members to keep non-protected disclosures confidential, but Inventors Network cannot guarantee that members will do so.

Each person attending each meeting must sign a confidentiality/non-disclosure agreement with respect to subject matter disclosed at the meeting.

Inventors Network does not provide brokerage, manufacturing, marketing, design, legal, accounting, or financial services. Inventors Network is an association of people who either have experience or who want to learn from people with experience. We share tips and try to figure out the best way to proceed in our individual situations. If a member is impressed with a resource, one may recommend that resource to the group or to any other member. To explore technical or philosophical issues, whether you are an inventor, entrepreneur, employee, or employer, this is the ideal forum for networking with people who can identify with your goals.

Anyone who has an idea, an entrepreneurial spirit, or experience in meeting inventors’ challenges, is welcome. There are no requirements regarding your idea, development, patent status, or educational level.
