Mark Reyland's going to PUKE.

Wow this Clown Mark Reyland is a real Piece of $HIT. Now he's going after the UIA and Warren Tuttle. It doesn't surprise us after the UIA handed him his walking papers . He headed out the door with his dirty diaper on and it looks like he's still wearing it.  We already knew Warren Tuttle was all about promoting himself for professional gain through the UIA. He's proved that for years. Tuttle had to get rid of Reyland after we found out he submitted Reyland's colander invention he submitted to LifeTime Brands. Yeah it was the same concept Lesia Farmer Licensed to LifeTime Brands through Warren. Actually Reyland's was more of a Cow Pie picker upper than a colander. You can read all about it through this blog.

Reyland's statement below makes us laugh. "Slimiest" Really, that's calling the kettle black

 "Set aside the fact that when I left, the UIA turned functional control over to one of the slimiest board members in the group,"

Reyland's just pissed off he lost his UIA position and wants to toss stones just like he always has. Were wondering if he tossed stones at the guy that his wife Debra divorced him for :)

I think I'm going to puke.....

I received this email from the UIA today and it made me sick....
Look... me of all people know how destructive the rock throwing in our industry has been. In fact, you could say I've been hit on one or two occasions. But come on.... I left the UIA because the board under Warren Tuttle's leadership was selling us as an industry out for both professional and personal gain.

Set aside the fact that when I left, the UIA turned functional control over to one of the slimiest board members in the group, giving the entire membership list to their marketing department and letting their sales people field your calls and Emails.

Set aside the fact that they sold out the membership to some DC lobby group for a piece of legislation they themselves said had little effect on you as inventors - then tried to convince you it was in your best interest.

Set aside the fact that they now hired a career government guy who is neither an inventor or a business person, a guy who in my opinion built a career at the USPTO selling out the inventors he was charged with supporting in favor of every promotion that came down the pike, building that career in bed with some of the biggest crooks in our industry.

NOW... they want you to celebrate the UIA as Warren and his merry band of opportunists allow the crooks and scumbags we worked so hard to get rid of take back the ship. If they want to be "Our UIA" we need to hold them accountable for the decisions they make and the people they associate with.

Warren always told me that "if the time comes when I'm not helping the UIA anymore I'll leave" of course he didn't really mean it.... but after selling us out over and over, and associating the organization with one crook after another - I think it's time.

Mark T. Reyland's Burger Flipping Colander.

Well the 2014 International Hardware Show was a hit without Mark T. Reyland this year. Hard to BELEIVE isn't it. What a BLESSING it is to NOT have this lying CONMAN in the Inventor Community anymore. We here he's working at the White Castle LITTLE BURGER Joint in Charleston N.C flipping Burgers. Yes this man LOVES Burgers almost as much as he LOVES HIMSELF. Give it 4 or 5 month he will have CEO White Castle on his resume.

You just never know what Mark's capable of with FAKE accomplishments. Maybe he's using his Stupid Colander he designed around Trap Door Colander Lesia Farmer invented and Licensed to LTB. We would think he would have a better chance getting a job at a dog kennel picking up Dog $hit with that contraption. His design was sooooo stupid looking and had huge handles on it. All we can do is laugh thinking about that damn thing. What's more Stupid is Warren Tuttle the President of the UIA actually presented it to LifeTime Brands.

Well ..with THIS CLOWN out of the way maybe the New UIA director Paul Niemann can clean up the Organization once and for all. The next unethical board member that needs to go is Warren for putting Reyland in the drivers seat in 2010.

If anyone wants to stop in at the White Castle to visit Reyland please go to the bath room before hand. Our guess is you will PISS your pants watching this ASSHOLE flipping burgers with his colander. Holy Cray that's a picture everyone needs to see.

Well at least Matt Spangard and Louis Foreman over at Edison Nation can sleep at thing without having to put up with this Moron and his FAKE user profiles on the forums. Louis has Inventor Roger Brown so handcuffed from getting on other forums with his Mark Reyland supporting BS. Were waiting to here Roger has his head stuck up Reyland's again then were going to take him out of the Inventor Community also.

Matt & Louis, Hats off to you guys for having a safe place for inventors to learn and have a fighting chance to make their dreams come true.

Until Next time CHOW!

Mark Reyland United Inventors "ASS"ociation BEGGING For Money.

Well the piece of Crap Mark T. Reyland finally crawled out of his hole and BEGGING for money to support the UIA. What's hilarious is his fake beard trying to look like Stephen Key. LOL

Were shocked he didn't try looking like his old buddy Inventor Roger Brown from Edison Nation. Louis Foreman Roger's Boss handcuffed him from associating with Conman Mark Reyland.

America's Got Talent & Mark T. Reyland

Check the youtube video out below. It reminds us of United Inventors Association Executive Director Mark T. Reyland. Reyland. He post all over the internet he has a product development company with many patents in his name. He claims to be an expert in the Inventor Industry without showing any proof.

After watching the video see if it reminds you of Reyland the CONMAN. In time CONMEN all screw up and get caught. Look at the CONMAN act by Timothy Poe the stuttering “America’s Got Talent” contestant.

Tim Poe, the stuttering “America’s Got Talent” contestant who won over the crowd and judges with his moving story of turning to music after almost being killed by a grenade in Afghanistan in 2009, has some serious explaining to do.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the soldier in the Army portrait he provided to the show was not actually him, and then the Minnesota National Guard said it could not substantiate his claims about being injured in the war.
Now, Poe is apologizing for passing off U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Norman Bone’s photo in combat as his own, claiming he never meant to mislead the public for his own personal gain.
In an interview with the New York Post, the aspiring singer admits that his war injury “may not have happened exactly like I said it did,” claiming, “I really do not remember a lot of things since the accident. I remember a blast going off by my head and being in Afghanistan and telling one of the sergeants.”
Poe also admits to lying about never singing prior to his supposed accident (he had told judges he turned to performing as a way to cure his brain injury-induced stammer).
“I was in a band,” he confesses. “But it was before the accident. And at the time of ‘AGT,’ when the judges asked, before I could even think about answering, my words had already came out.”
But that’s not the end of it.
Poe ALSO admits to lying about being awarded the Purple Heart for his military service.
Check out video of his “AGT” performance below.
What do you make of Poe and his story — Do you believe some of it, or think he’s a total fraud?
And should he be kicked off for lying — or kept because of his talent?

Warren Tuttle UIA President has to be stupid if he thinks all of the accomplishments on the CONMAN Reyland's resume is real.

Mark Reyland "Oh Now do You Get It"?

This was posted by Mark Reyland on the UIA Blog. We find it interesting.


Wednesday, June 26

Oh...Now I get it

We often get questions from people about the UIA and what we do. So from time to time we remind people of the basics.

The United Inventors Association of America is the largest inventor organization of its kind in the United States. With over 14,000 members you're in good company, and Inventor education is always 100% free.
We can assure you there are NOT 14,000 members. The UIA sends out 14,000 emails that end up in the trash bin.
As a nonprofit 501c(3) Educational Foundation we don't get involved in deals with inventors, we don't represent inventors, we don't charge inventors, or sell them books, or coaching, or anything else. We focus the power of the professionals in the industry to get you the knowledge you need and the opportunities to get in front of the right industry people.
The above statement is all Bull Shit. The UIA is all about money from sponsors and representing inventors. Lets look at how Invention Home & make money off inventors. Their business model's a Bait & Switch scheme. By the way you will see Russell Williams owns Invention Home & plus he's a UIA Board Member.  
And when we're not doing that, we give you a voice in the halls of congress on issues that affect you. Issues like the pro-bono patent program,  the inventor protection act, and the currently being developed Patent small claims court.
Oh and when Mark Reyland isn't in the halls of Congress he's reverse engineering some inventors idea just like he did with Lesia Farmer and he Trap Door Colander she Licensed to LifeTime Brands,He use to invent in his dark little basement in Ohio until his wife kicked his ass out of the house for being a LOOSER & CONMAN. Reyland's told everyone his wife ran off with a church cult leader. We no that's not the case at all.
There are hundreds of hard working, dedicated people involved in the UIA, all serving you, the independent inventor.  Many of us have been where you are, and we're happy to help you on your journey any way we can.
That's funny ,hundreds of hard working people, yeah right. Maybe if you were to count all Mark Reyland's multiple personalities there are 100.
Much of the information you need as an inventor is out there free of charge, you just have to find it and use it.
Really free of charge Mr. Reyland. If that's the case why is Russell Williams pulling off a Bait & Switch on inventors

Insider Blows The Whistle on the United Inventors Association & CONMAN Mark Reyland

By Joe Fournier
Friday, June 14,

Around May of 2012, I was an Inventor Member of the UIA, a post had come to my email looking for volunteers for the UIA,  I volunteered and shortly after received a phone call from Mark Reyland, Mark offered various tasks and offered to pay me for those tasks on a per task basis,  I worked for the UIA for almost a year, My first “Official Title” was Volunteer Coordinator, During that time I was still doing the work and research on the Inventors Rights Act of 1999.  Prior to this I had no writing experience that would qualify my to re write any legislative document.
When I first got involved with this I did not know a lot about the UIA, I was simply a Member who had signed up a short time before, and wanted to volunteer to help, from my understanding, the UIA was supposed to be a place where inventors could go to get help from quality and trusted companies, other resources were available, to help inventors become successful.  While I did not know a whole lot about the UIA, Mark Reyland pushed that it’s all about teaching inventors, later more derogatory terms were used, but I will get into the later.

Mark had met with me and I shared with him my invention, in which he thought was great, so did everyone I showed it to, but still do date I have no great success story to tell from any invention, even now why Mark thought I had any qualifications to do any of these Jobs I really do not know, maybe because I showed an interest, looking back, maybe because I would be easy to manipulate.  With the Director, of Corporate Membership services, looking back and seeing the emails, I was really pushed into this job, almost goaded into taking the Job, that I KNEW I was not qualified for.  This is part of an email I received when I was being asked to take the job

Really….are you scared of this level of job? because if you are I'm going to make fun of you forever :)

 I am an inventor who to date has never brought a product to market, I had no experience in any of the positions I did with the UIA, I had to teach myself just about everything , when I had questions I would email them to mark for clarification, It is my opinion it was my level of interest in inventing or looking back now, an easy victim, I was never asked for any work history, references, or anything like that,  I struggled with the decision to take the offer and had many discussions with my wife about it, I feared I could not do the job as described, Mark finally talked me into taking the position, and I jumped in head first not knowing what I was doing.  I was simply a UIA member trying help  people.  Then is when I learned how the corporate membership programs worked, Patron Membership 500.00 per year with no ROI, a small business platinum Membership 3000.00  per year included 2 emails per year to advertise to the UIA members, and one blog a month, and a Platinum Membership which hekd the same ROI as the Small business platinum Membership5000.00 per year.  In many cases even a large company could sign up for the 3000.00 membership it was said that its better to get 3000.00 from them than nothing at all. So even those “rules” were not enforced.

In a couple cases the UIA allowed companies to “pay to play” for emailing the UIA community, on one such case, Inventions Geneva was charged $500, for a patron membership and paid an additional $500.00 for the UIA to advertise their event. We sent out two emails for Inventions Geneva for the additional $500. 

In the second case, Ron Docie signed up for a Patron membership and was allowed to advertise his services to the UIA community.  No other Patron member was afforded this opportunity unless it was where I asked them to send me something for a blog post thanking our patron members.

Certain trades were made with companies to exchange services for sponsorship, Fargo Design, and a radio station both had services trade agreements. Trade a membership from the UIA for their services.

It wasn’t till all this started that I realized that even the telling the corporate sponsors we were emailing at this point almost 14,000 members, the fact of the matter is really this well that’s not quite the truth either, you see almost 14,000 is the member count, but what they don’t tell you when they send out the emails is the some 5000 of those who have opted out of receiving emails from the UIA, and it doesn’t tell you of the 2000 to 3000 errors it gets from people signing up with fake, or improper emails, so how many out of almost 14,000 wind up actually getting an email, if my memory recalls somewhere between 6000 and 7000 that actually receive the email, and then add the bounce backs that came to my email, either the email for that person had changed, required verification, unknown delivery recipient, so the number may be even less than that.
Initially, when I started the membership director position there was NO voting. It was simply a company would want to join, they would pay their dues and they were added to the website and blog pages. After the Jan 2013 (annual) board meeting the process changed.  There are 5 members of the executive committee Mark Reyland (also the executive Director) Trevor Lambert, Ken Bloemer, Warren Tuttle (president), and Bill McHenry. Generally speaking I would do basic research on a company and send it over for a vote; the only NO vote I recall ever getting was from Bill McHenry. McHenry or Warren (I cannot remember which) initiated a conference call to discuss the company. After Bill presented his evidence as to why this company should not be allowed into the UIA, it was sent back out for vote, the votes came in 4 YES and 1 NO (the no was still Bill McHenry). It was a “majority wins” voting system, and once I had 3 YES votes I could send them (the new member) a link to make payment.

 I received an email from a previous corporate sponsor who with their permission I will include their story where she says that their references were never even checked, The Company was promised a bunch of things that they never received, and feels taken advantage of as a corporate sponsor. The original letter is also on my blog. 
 Here is the Quoted Email from this previous “Certified Pros’” letter to me , it seems as even when they had the Certified Pro label for what they now call sponsors, nothing was different, they were not doing all the checks they had promised the UIA community they promised they were doing anyway.  Maybe that explains the “so what” attitude, I guess nothing really changed but the name, they were never doing any actual research back then either.

“Dear Joe!

Thank you for your candor! I appreciate your honesty and boldness to step forward and "blow the whistle". I was actually offered your position by Mark Reyland almost a year ago and when I queried him on the outrageous requirements of the job position I never received an answer. I can validate your claim as I paid $5000.00 for a Platinum Membership and was never researched nor were my references called. A fact I found terribly disturbing given the level of "approval" i was supposed to be subjected to. I was promised that I would be invited to be a guest speaker at trade shows, attend VIP dinners where conferences were held and never received an invitation. I was fleeced for $5000.00 and couldn't even access the membership directory after paying. I could go on and on.

If you would like to discuss this with me further or need any fodder to substantiate your claims please feel free to call me!! I was left out to dry by the UIA at the Platinum Level and lost all hope in my invention and company.

I am SO appreciative you stepped out and brought this situation into the light!!

With gratitude,

Identity hidden intentionally.

So I have to wonder now with the UIA, was it ever about the actual Inventor, or was it about the money, I think we all know the answer to that. I cant even count the times I was told that the amount of money coming in didn’t cover the “nut”  I also know several weeks ago I was told directly by Mark Reyland that the UIA account had a over 700.00 negative balance,  that is what he said.

While I didn’t know about any actual perks involved with the tradeshow sponsors. The only thing I found odd, is InventionHome was always a sponsor of trade shows, I don’t know if that is wrong, just thought that they were just hand in hand with the UIA. I do not know what or if they paid for sponsorships, as trade shows were not my department; it just always struck me as odd.

As far as my job with the UIA goes, I was never written up for anything, I was never reprimanded, I was never in any sort of trouble None!  In reviewing emails I see a lot of praises for my hard work. I was terminated when I asked Mark to call me, related to being compensated for work I had completed 2 weeks prior in a text message which turned into a “back and forth” text argument that resulted in “the UIA will no longer require your services.” I was asked to take over, because I was told by Mark Reyland that Roger Brown Inventor who had been answering the email was forced to quit doing the job, or face consequences greater than a few day suspensions he received from his workplace Edison Nation, and Roger Brown was to write an apology letter to John Young.  SO I took over that Job and was promised 500.00 per month, at the end of April I sent a report of how many questions came in, I submitted the required information at the end of the month.  I expected to be paid, when 2 weeks went by I sent mark a text message that said something like, Hey Bud, sorry for your loss, but when you have time I really need to talk to you about compensation on the inventing question thing.  Mark sent back a nasty message I sent a nasty message, this went back and forth and then I received the UIA will no longer require your services, in a text message

Its interesting reflecting back and now that as I have talked to 2 other people who were offered this position, they were offered a higher pay structure than I was, example being, a full platinum membership costs 5000.00 and commission on the 2 other contracts were 1000 commission, but I was only paid 750.00 for the same thing, I wonder now looking at Mark Reyland told me they were never offered 1000, was Mr Reyland been pocketing 250.00 of each sale I made?  I requested the procedures for hiring and firing and have not gotten a reply.  Also wouldn’t the pay involved in any position be something that would have been voted on by the board? Or does this just another example where Mark Reyland is the board and makes all the decisions on his own?  Why would my pay be different than someone else’s?  I can see where as I had no experience in the beginning, to make a smaller amount, but I had proven my abilities many times over.  I was also told that I would make a base pay of 500.00 per month, when QVC pulled their deal out I was told that I would no longer be getting a base pay,  there were times where I worked all month and if a sale didn’t come in, I spent the entire month and made absolutely NOTHING.

I was accused of hacking into the UIA computer systems, when the fact is I simply logged in with the credentials given to me by Mark. I found it actually refreshing that in Warren’s message to the members he admits to what I had told everyone; they did indeed change the certification to (just) sponsorship, but he did not address why the UIA failed to inform the UIA community of this change.

I truly do not understand; even before all this there are tons of stories of how unethical Mark is and how he is giving the UIA a bad name, to the point I was told directly by Mark, that the negativity around him cost the UIA some $200,000 per year on a 3-year deal with QVC (Martin Bispels) .  And I was told by Mark that Bill McHenry had asked for Mark’s resignation at some point to the board or maybe directly to Warren. Why the President of the organization would allow this I really have no clue.

If I could Make a recommendation to anyone it would be research,  Not just the UIA, but any company, find out who you are dealing with, find out who is in the company research those people as well,  I actually Have a few ideas on how to create an organization better than what the UIA is offering.

We Received THIS Today...

From: Joe Fournier <>
Date: Wed, May 15, 2013 at 7:23 PM
Subject: Blowing the Whistle
Dear Members,
My Name is Joe Fournier. I was the Director of Membership Programs for the United Inventors Association.
I would like to firstly inform you that this email is being sent out to every member of the UIA.
Many of you go to the UIA website to look for corporate sponsors that you might want to do business with. In some cases, you would be better off doing a Google search. There are some important facts that you probably are unaware of. During the annual board meeting at the end of January 2013, the United Inventors Association CEASED certification of their sponsor companies because certification creates liability for the UIA. However they failed to offer you, the inventor in need of assistance, the courtesy of informing you that they had removed this safety net. The UIA board members preferred to allow you to trust that they were performing their due diligence with the companies who received their seal of membership for their websites and on the UIA website. In reality, the United Inventors Association was no longer performing any such service. My position as Director of Membership Programs was to find companies who wanted to sponsor (provide operational funding for) the UIA. Following the annual board meeting, companies that wished to sponsor the UIA would send me their BASIC information. I would then send that information to the UIA executive committee who would then vote Yes or No. My position required NO RESEARCH into the past histories, current practices, ethics, or basic trustworthiness of those companies. In many cases, the request for sponsorship approval was sent out and within minutes YES replies were returned. I feel that there was NO ATTEMPT AT RESEARCHING the potential sponsor companies due to the swiftness of the replies I had received. In fact the only negative response I had EVER received was from Bill McHenrey. Even when he had said no and presented valid reasons why the company should not be a sponsor, he was out voted by the remainder of the committee. That company paid between $3000 and $5000 to become a sponsor and have access to the UIA mailing list. While they were not allowed to have the mailing list at their discretion, we would send out promotional mailings for this company to the inventor members of the UIA. If a company wants to access our members the only requirement is PAYMENT. Special programs were designed for patron sponsors at a cost of $250.00 per email to have anything at they desired sent to all of you. This is basically a “pay to play” agenda.
The UIA website has not been updated and no new material has been added since I joined this organization.
I have had personal conversations with Mark Reyland, the Executive Director of the United Inventors Association, during which he explained that he was duplicating a product another inventor had only recently successfully brought to the consumer market. Mark Reyland, the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the UIA made DEMANDS that this inventor show him the claims on the patent the inventor held. He has even asked me to do CAD design work for a product that I now believe he was trying to at least directly interfere with the success of, if not outright steal .
Please do your own research. Perform a Google search on Mark Reyland or on the UIA and draw your own conclusions.
I would like to formally apologize for any direct or indirect actions on my part that may have resulted in damage to any of you. It was never my intention to act in any manner that could be perceived in any way as unethical. I believed in the mission of the UIA, and believed I was acting to HELP inventors bring their ideas and products to the public.
