What is your Complaint?
Name of mass media invention promoter advertised in: Web-site with address: www.davison54.com
Invention promotion service offered to be performed: The company “Davison Inventegration” has offered to market in the USA on license-basis an invention I have made and patented in Sweden and with patent pending in the USA.
Explanation of complaint between customer and invention promoter: The invention is a collapsible, wiggle-free camping table. A comprehensive contract was signed between Davison and me, drawings and explanations were sent from me to Davison and after I had paid them more than $6,500, they start to fabricate a prototype. They insisted in making their own prototype, not following my drawings because they wanted to make it “production friendly”. After about half a year, a drawing arrived showing their “prototype”. It was all wrong. It was not wiggle-free nor collapsible (a camping table must be collapsible). I take the liberty of enclosing their drawing. They have applied means to adjust the table-top always to be in the horizontal position. But still, the table can wiggle. To avoid wiggling, the table-legs must be adjusted in order to make all 4 table-legs reach the ground and that is what my patent solves in a simple and rapid way. They want me to approve their version, which I will never do, because it does not solve the actual problem. I have explained by letter, fax, and telephone how a prototype should be made. They just ignore me and keep the money. Business is concluded from their side.
