Innovation Direct™ Inventor Files Provisional Application for a Patent for DD's Safe Ring Concept

Miami, FL, August 24, 2012 --( Innovation Direct™, a South Florida-based leader in the invention assistance field since 1997, recently facilitated the process of the filing a provisional application for a patent for Texas resident and inventor Ramon Tercero on his DD’s Safe Ring invention upon his request. The DD’s Safe Ring is a cell phone accessory that enables its users to insure that their cell phones are secure within their grasp at all times.

Mr. Tercero initially submitted information about the DD’s Safe Ring to Innovation Direct™ in May 2012 on the company’s Confidential Product Outline. Innovation Direct™ screened the invention to insure that it did not fall into a restricted category, and one of the company’s New Project Directors discussed the product further with the inventor. Shortly thereafter, a Product Management Services Agreement proposal that is intended to provide the DD’s Safe Ring with the optimal level of exposure to potential licensees through a variety of promotional and descriptive materials, including press releases, a digital rendition, an online product profile, an interactive virtual reality presentation, and participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year, was presented to Mr. Tercero. Exhibits that Innovation Direct™ has attended in recent years include the SHOT Show, the International Home and Housewares Show, the National Hardware Show, Licensing International, the SEMA and AAPEX Shows and the ERA D2C Convention.

In June 2012, Mr. Tercero opted to contract Innovation Direct™ to represent the DD’s Safe Ring to potential licensees for a 2 year period under the terms of the Product Management Services Agreement. The terms of the agreement also included Innovation Direct™ referring Mr. Tercero to an independent patent law firm for the filing of a provisional application for a patent on the DD’s Safe Ring. The application was officially filed on Monday, August 6, 2012 and is valid for the term of one year. Prior to its expiration, Mr. Tercero will have to decide whether or not to opt to have the independent patent law firm convert the application to a non-provisional version.

Through its diverse range of promotional and descriptive materials that help provide the products on its roster with valuable exposure, as well as its ability to refer its inventor clients to quality independent patent law firms for the securing of legal protection on their products, Innovation Direct™ provides the independent inventor with the most comprehensive and effective collection of invention assistance services currently available in the industry!
