Are there reliable and trustworthy third-parties who can help? What are the chances that a reasonably good idea gets licensed? Have you seen examples of people who did this and succeeded? What advice do you have for me?
Some background: I am an engineer who has worked several years in various B2B industries. I have several granted patents and applications from my employments (obviously granted to my employers) and hence I am reasonably familiar with the patent process. My current ideas are not of interest to my employer. I am not under an illusion that I will make millions. But interested to know if I can make low 6 figure (USD) annual income over the long run.
