NIPC Inventors’ Club: Autumn Newsletter 2010

NIPC Inventors Club is a club for private inventors. I define private inventors for these purposes as inventors who are not employed in a research and development capacity. That’s to say, folk like Trevor Baylis, Mandy Haberman and James Dyson.

A few years ago I founded inventors’ clubs in Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield.  These clubs provide a forum for inventors where

  • they can exchange ideas, information, experiences and recommendations with other inventors;
  • hear guest speakers such as inventors who have successfully commercialized their inventions, patent agents, product design consultants and business advisers; and
  • network with people who can help them such as business angels and professional service providers.

The NIPC Inventors Club seeks to bring the inventors in Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield together with inventors in other clubs and in none so that they can do more things.   Maybe they can negotiate discounts on intellectual property insurance and professional services.    Perhaps they can put on courses on searching and marketing where they can learn some useful skills.   Possibly they can showcase their inventions or even set up a local  market for their inventions on the lines of Invention Buy in the USA.

A a first step I have set up a website known for the Club at   The Club also has a blog at   And now it has a newsletter which was published for the first time yesterday.

Basic membership of the Club is and will always remain free.   If you would like to join the Club click this form.


About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
