I went to the office in Toronto with a design and a proto-type of my product. The guy there thought it was a great idea (of course) and sold me on the idea of having them put together a patent search and a game plan to get my product into trade shows.
I paid approximately $1,100. My next appointment i was handed a very impressive hard covered book with Patent search fields, along with drawings and information on moving forward. The SALESMAN then tried to convince me to invest more money so my product would be more appealing to companies at Trade Shows. The interesting thing is that all of the drawings in the book can be found at Google Patents for free.
They use the exact same pictures. Do it yourself.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
