It is difficult if not statistically impossible to simply sell or license an abstract idea. Companies evaluate many factors, including but not limited to whether the invention is reduced to some particular form, patent-pending, or an actual patent has been granted. Before signing up with an invention promotion company, ask the right questions. You can also visit the websites of the patent office, the small business administration, the federal trade commission and/or consult with us.
