Its our mission to educate the inventor so they can make educated decisions as to which company and resources they choose to use in regards to marketing and protecting their idea. We only provide the research and facts in regards to any companies that we review. In the event that the company feels that any of the information provided in our reviews are in accurate or false , they are welcome to contact us to provide valid evidence to support their claim.
Please be sure to return to our blog later this month, we will be providing our factual review of several other Invention Promotion companies as well as late stage inventor companies and patent companies. The company reviewed below can be categorized as an invention promotion, invention marketing company. (UPDATED 2/1/2015)
After review of IDEA DESIGN STUDIO, we have concluded that they are catagorized as a Invention Promotion company. Simply put this company that we believe really have no vested interest in the sucess of your idea most of their profits are made by providng services to market your idea. Typicly they will refer you to a patent attorny and encourage you to apply for a provisional patent application for a DESIGN patent, not a UTILITY patent which offers little to no protecion for your invention. Refer to USPTO website for a complete understanding of the various patents that are available.
The model IDEA DESIGN STUDIO uses is what is known as a direct to market model rather than a direct to manufactuer model where by you are able to offer your protected idea to manufactuers to consider buying or licesing the idea with no need for expesive design and marketing services. The company will provide marketing services, will pretty much accept just about any idea they recieve simply becuase their goal is marketing your invention with out first confirming your idea is comercialy vialble or patentable.
In our opinion this model will only provide you a benefit if you are looking to go direct to market which can be very costly. In most cases between actual manufactuer sourcing, proper product development, distribution, operations, branding, marketing and even engineering cost can easily spend between anywhere from $50,000 to well over $100,000 getting your product to market . We have listed the services they offer below which can range from a few hundred to over ten thousand on these marketing services.

Review Title: Not Bad, But Be Cautious
I also used Idea Design Studio for one of my projects. The upside was they were affordable ($350) and got a 3D prototype done within a week of product idea submission. The proposed patent cost was $3000. This was for a design patent. However, when I questioned them further it was a Provisional Patent which is only good for one year. Why pay $3000 for a Provisional Design Patent when you can get a full 20 year utility for $10,000? Didn't make sense to me. The other thing that was not making sense was they provide marketing but didn't take any money on the back end such as a percentage for getting you the deal. I found this odd and saw this as a lack of motivation to get me a deal if there was no longer anything for them to gain once I paid them the upfront costs. Didn't pass the common-sense test with me on that deal structure so I decided not to go any further with the organization with my idea.

If you are you are doing your duediligence in regards to INVENTION MARKETING , INVENTION PROMOTION, PATENT MARKETING COMPANIES, we encourage you to review our article on and educate yourself on these type of companies http://www.globalresourcebroker.com/blog/invention-promotion-invention-marketing-scams
A COPY OF THE DESA INDSUTRIES, WORLD PATENT MARKETING RIPOFF REPORT IS PROVIDED AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE, IN THE EVENT THAT IT IS REMOVED.
We encourage you to do your own due diligence, here is a recent link that has been pushed down to the thrid or fourth page on google search due to the masive reputation management budget that World Patent Marketing is spending to keep these honest third party reviews from your view.
A perfect example of this is unscrupulous business practice, is a company now known as Innovation Direct, which has changed it's name multiple times over the last 15 years.
2011 - was Invention Technologies,
2005 - was Licensing Direct
1999 - started out as International Technology Transfer otherwise known as Invent Tech. http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/specific_search/INVENT%20TECH
As for their success being patented, this nothing more than a software program they patented which manufacuers use in order to review inventions. Innovation Direct claims that they are directly responsible for every success story they mention on their website when in reality the invention success really had nothing to do with going through the companies process.
The orignal company Invent Tech had such a bad reputation as you can find through this ripoff report link http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/specific_search/INVENT%20TECH
UPDATE 1/29/2015 Just came to our attention that BBB of Miami has rated this company with a A rating even though they have had 23 complaints in only 2 years and 12 in the last 2 years. Even as recent as Dec 2014 here is a link to there rating system you judge for yourself.
We never put down any other companies, but to shine light on the issues that we see commonly in our industry like World Patent Marketing. Follow the link below in order to see the RIPOFF REPORT that was filed against WORLD PATENT MARKETING, INC. also know as DESA Industries Inc. I have provided a forensic background on this Delaware shell corporation for your research and benefit. Tax ID 0699715 filed incorporation in the State of Delaware 02/25/2010. This was done in order to become accredited on BBB which requires a minimum of one year in business. Once they became accredited under DESA Industries they then opened up a foreign entity corporation in the state of NY as seen below April 21, 2014 and it was then changed to DBA WORLD PATENT MARKETING, INC. under the FL chapter of the BBB which might I add was not even a corporation but just a website name. This enable them to falsely represent that they have been in the invention marketing business for the last 4 years and are BBB accredited.
You will notice that the TRADE MARK INFORMATION shows that the Name of World Patent Marketing was registered for trademark and started doing business.

DBA World Patent Marketing Desa Industries which was recently incorporated in FL 9/16/2014 It seems this company falls under the long list of Invention Marketing, Invention Promotion and newly termed Patent Marketing category. From our experience the company is set up with as a elaborate shell company game in order to show false representation in regards to length of time in they have been in the invention business as well as a false accreditation with the BBB.
This company is located in Miami FL, and like many of the others in our opinion, will not be here for the long hall. Its just a mater of time before the complaints start rolling in and they have to change their name and open up as another company you will find a few of them below.

Review Title: New Company
I talked to this company and I did a patent search with them however as I found out they are a very new company with no real success stories from any of their clients. They seem like good guys but do not have any real track record. A little on the expensive side so tread lightly here.

Review Title: Sketchy Company
This company was a furniture company called Dessa Industries that in 2014 decided to jump into the invention business. The reason there are reviews on the site is they ask the customer for an initial review of the agent they are working with from the first or second conversation when you are in the initial phase of your product research. Before the research guide was completed and sent back to me I thought they were great and said so in my comments on the site about agent "JAY **** ." However, after I received the finished product that included an incorrect drawing that was submitted for the university study portion, I was no longer pleased with the service. When I brought this to the attention of World Patent Marketing management they accused me of submitting the wrong drawing to them and yelled and argued like we were husband and wife arguing at the house. I asked the gentleman was he actually defending his company's mistake by yelling at me, and reminded him that he was asking me to invest another $10,000 on top of the $1250 I already paid for the patent search and the market analysis (market analysis came back with data from India). He then continued to yell and I hung the phone up and counted my $1250 as a loss. I will never give them another dime of my hard earned money. They have no track record and all the videos online are false. Chances are if they get a deal for you, you will be the first as they have only been around since March of 2014. Check the registration date of the website online and see "Dessa Industries" and you will find that they aren't accurately representing themselves.
