Question
What is your opinion of Edison Nations Submit Your Idea(s),for $25 and $20 for members?

Answer
Hello there Jennifer,

Thanks for asking. Personally speaking I would not waste any time with them, that is any invention submission company irrespective of how fancy they are, period, end, full stop.

As you probably know, the USA is now a First-to-File country; therefore, were it me, I'd be filing a legal document of some sort before turning over any invention materials to anyone especially when they have the means and resources to tool up their versions and launch.

Regards,
Penny
