This a brochure published by US Federal Trade Commission in cooperation with the US Patent Office.
The brochure is about how some 'unscrupulous promoters take advantage of an inventor’s enthusiasm for a new product or service. They not only urge inventors to patent their ideas or invention, but they also make false and exaggerated claims about the market potential of the invention'.
The message is simple: be aware of tempting advertisings; beware of insistent salespersons; be extremely cautious about handling money to greedy companies. 'Remember that once a dishonest company has your money, you may never get it back.'
