MELVILLE, N.Y., March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- John Calvert, administrator of the Inventors Assistance Program at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and USPTO Special Programs Advisor Mindy Bickel will be on Got Invention Radio hosted by Brian Fried to talk about new programs the office has to help independent inventors, recent activity on patent reform legislation and the upcoming Women's Entrepreneurship Symposium.
It's a heavy-hitting agenda that follows quickly on the heels of the Senate passing the much-debated patent reform bill or America Invents Act. John and Mindy will also be taking listeners calls and emails with questions live during the show which airs tonight at 8pm ET/5pm PT when you click on the "listen live" button on the homepage of www.gotinvention.com
Got Invention Radio, an online live radio platform for inventors and entrepreneurs, recently reached a benchmark 10,000 listeners a month. In 2009, Brian Fried founded Got Invention Radio, which is presented by Inventors Digest Magazine. "We're pleased with the growth and caliber of content of the show," said Inventors Digest editor Mike Drummond. "In an industry with too many charlatans and carnival barkers, Brian wears a dignified white hat. Got Invention Radio, like Inventors Digest, offers must-have, best-of-breed information for aspiring product developers."
The show has attracted an impressive list of guests, including ABC's Shark Tank co-host Kevin Harrington, A.J. Kuhbani of TeleBrands, fitness product inventor and award-winning TV personality and creator of the Spin Gym Forbes Riley, patent attorneys, licensing agents, entrepreneurs, authors and many others.
The show offers a solid resource of trustworthy information for inventors, as well as a platform for candid and sometimes controversial inventing-related topics. "Got Invention Radio," says Forbes Riley, "saves inventors time, money and lots of headaches."
The show is also registered with the United Inventors Association, the nation's premier educational nonprofit for inventors. Mark Reiland says, “I think Got Invention Radio is one of the most important tools inventors have for keeping up on what’s going on the industry. It has great information, great education and is a great inventor resource – one of the top three tools inventors should be using along with UIA and Inventor’s Digest. Entertaining and informative … time well spent.”
