All Category Search

Whenever I submit an idea,  I  also submit the same idea to the All Category Search. This time, however, EN really forgot about it. Sorry, but  It's just a tease to see green, every time I log on. EN, please review when you have a moment. Thank you!  ( Yeah, I know, I'm asking for the Big R 4.)  

Has anyone ever submit an idea to a specific product search, and then had the same idea successful in the "All Category Search?

Thats an interesting question/ Is this a fruitful endeavor or a wasted submission. I personally have never did this. Good Luck!

Big R4, now I can move on. thank you, EN.

Hi Barry, 

Probably wasted submission, but it always  gives me  a little hope!

EN, have any submitted inventions been developed from the All Categorie search?

Mary - there have been many EN members whose submissions to Open Search have ended in licensing deals, as can quickly think of over a dozen. We have also had some that were in multiple searches, including Open search that ended with a deal that came about because of new partner that launched a search.

There have been several pet category products that have licensed through the Open Search, as well as examples within consumer healthcare, baking/kitchen gadgets, and bathroom/personal care items
