However, a number of difficulties stand in the way. Obtaining a patent is not easy. Inventorlink receives over a thousand ideasayear. According tothemarketingmanagerofInventorlink, inventors come in two different types. Half of them are experts, the others are talented amateurs. A successful invention should be original and wanted. There should be a market for it and it should be able to be made economically. In reality the chances of success are very small. In the games market, Monopoly is a best-seller, almost 60 years after its invention. But in most cases it’s really very hard for new ideas to be accepted!
