Regarding Links

While we ONLY want to list quality resources, we cannot guarantee the quality, accuracy or integrity of all the companies or people listed here.  Always exercise caution when dealing with anyone in the invention industry. Some of the websites we link to on this page, while providing good information, allow Google AdWords which means that they display advertisements.  Many of the companies that advertise through AdWords are the worst in the business.  Be careful about clicking on advertisements for inventor services that you may find on other websites.

* I encourage those of you who are the "Good Guys" in the business of rendering service or information to inventors to "disallow" outside ads from the invention industry on your websites. *
