has a dedicated team working on creating and sourcing cool and innovative new products and they all know exactly how good it feels to see an idea develop from a simple sketch or a few notes into a fully fledged product that the public can buy.
Thatís why we would like to offer a chance for designers, inventors and anyone with a great idea to have the opportunity to submit their product ideas to thumbsUp!
so that they can be considered for development.
We need the following information
Terms and Conditions
- What is your basic idea?
- Do you have any certifiable intellectual property rights? Have you patented it or registered your idea?
- What kinds of shops do you think will sell your product and for how much?
- Any sketches or photographs of prototypes.
- All submissions need to be unique. They must be completely your own idea and not violate any one elseís copyright, intellectual property or infringe on any patents.
- You must take full responsibility for ensuring that your submission does not break the above rule.
- There is no fee for submitting an idea.
- Multiple idea submissions are fine.
- Ideas that are suitable for development will be selected by thumbsUp! (UK) Ltdís management team.
- Copyright for the product or ideas submitted will remain with entrants.
- Any successful ideas submitted will be developed by thumbsUp! and royalties paid to their creators subject to contract.
- thumbsUp! is constantly coming up with new ideas internally.
- Therefore we may have previously come up with ideas that are similar to product entries, and these may either be in development, or already rejected.
- If we have already planned to release a product that is similar to an idea that has been submitted, we will release proof of this concept to the entrant in the form of existing design briefs or pictures.
- Submitted ideas will not be kept on file if rejected. Therefore, if a similar product is submitted by another person and then subsequently developed by thumbsUp!, this will have occurred completely independently. This may occur due to changing market or production conditions and similar concepts may be arrived at independently due to coincidence. Therefore, we recommend that if you feel that you have a truly novel and original creation, you either patent it or register the design, so no confusion can occur.
