After much reading where Mark Reyland of the United Inventors Association (UIA) publicly slams any crowd sourcing invention company as well as Edison Nation, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw him supporting and heavily promoting a start up of people who don’t appear to have a clue what they’re doing. Another crowd sourcing site called Fundageek.
We’d name the many he bashes but we rather not have them tied to his name and be subject to more Reyland stupidity.
Is this why Warren Tuttle, of Monashee Marketing, allows Mark Reyland to continue bashing companies who do the exact same thing as Fundageek? Did Warren, Mark and Roger Brown have these plans all along? Or is it more how that British website, A better Mousetrap, writes, the UIA is only Mark Reyland and nobody else?
We can`t help but think Reyland had his conman hands in this company as it started up. Seeing the Fundageek crew appear extremely green and claim they have much work to do to perfect their company, what better way to get his dirty hands in the company’s pocket?
Does Mark Reyland assure the Fundageek people as long as they stick with allowing the UIA (Mark)to speak for them, he won`t attack them publicly?
When asked what Mark Reyland (UIA) contributed to better Fundageek, one of the owners couldn`t answer the question. Was he told by Reyland NOT to answer? Probably.
Our guess is Mark Reyland approached them. It`s no secret Reyland wanted Edison Nation to hire him to review inventions, but they didn`t want him. He then reportedly slammed them by spending 80 plus hours a week trying to destroy them.
It`s no secret Mark Reyland has been approaching companies upon companies wanting them to hire him to review invention submissions also with zero luck. When he heard him judging a contest he looked so inexperienced and clearly had no idea what he was talking about. Remember, he doesn’t have any experience in actually inventing things. As Warren Tuttle put it, Reyland wasn’t hired for his experience; he was hired for his passion. WHAT? He was then told to change his UIA bio although it’s still BS.
What better way to view all the invention submissions than to find a green company, dazzle them with BS, like he did the board members of the UIA.
It looks like Mark Reyland has his hands in the pockets of inventors once again by teaming up with Fundageek. Are we surprised? absolutely not. The only surprising thing is Warren Tuttle not caring as long as Mark brings in business. The good news is inventors are getting smarter by the day and staying clear of Reyland and anything he`s involved in- sorry Fundageek.
How does Reyland claim Fundageek is So different from others? Wait for it...because they have it written on the site that publicly disclosing your invention COULD cause you to lose patent protection. Well wouldn’t Mr. Reyland just LOVE that considering we’ve seen documentation showing he’s an IP thief.
Let’s give an example here: If, like Reyland explains for inventors to do, you go and make a video to show your invention and ask for a little money to apply for protection (insert buzzer sound) TOO LATE! You just exposed your invention announcing you NEED protection and if someone like Mr. Reyland decided he wanted to now run out and protect it in his own name...totally legal J not ethical, but we all know Reyland has no idea what ethical means. The really ballsy part is Reyland acting as the protector of inventors, bashing other companies who do what Fundageek does, only better, while being of the UIA and explaining to inventors how to publicly disclose their invention and ask for protection money! HUH?!
It never takes anyone very long to realize they know more than Reyland and we’re sure Fundageek will be no different. Anyone can read how to be successful and recite it to others, but only a few can claim it from experience. Reyland has a library of books ;-)
Better make sure you do exactly as he says or you’ll be added to the stalking list of his. We’re watching it grow!
