Improve Your Brainstorming Skills
Protect Your Ideas
Are You Liable For Having An Idea?
• Are you liable for your creative ideas that may be no better than an unjustifiable opinion? Brainstorming doesn’t calibrate all possible scenarios. So can you be responsible for ideas shared that come off the top of your mind?
• Laws might protect brainstorming. International laws can encourage creative thinking by not making you liable for just sharing a creative idea, or invention concept. But liability increases when the invention concept is manufactured for the public.
• Politics, security and confidentiality matters don’t always permit free discussion. Political retaliation is common worldwide (not just in less developed countries).
• Joking with airlines, politicians or police can be illegal.
Don’t Punish Good Hearted Creative Thinkers:
• Don’t burden creative minds: Creative thinkers are more imaginative when not burdened by thoughts of repercussions from their ideas. The creative mind can think more freely by reducing the weights from worrying about being condemned for trying to solve a problem. Letting ideas flow off the top of one’s mind is proven to often generate more ideas.
• Make a list: Most new ideas will usually fail. So encourage a larger list of possible solutions without penalty. Later one seeks the better ideas when one is being less creative.
• Just Opinions: Brainstorming is a way of communicating opinions. Any negative statements are allegations.
• Just Opinions: Brainstorming is a way of communicating opinions. Any negative statements are allegations.

• Content comprises “elements” as defined in the patent application www.GeniusAdaptiveDesign.com, patent applications referencing said application.
• Creative thinking is also defined as: Connecting the elements (as in connecting the dots). Creative thinking and related tools, systems, methods and inventions are defined and measured by: Innovation Institute™ originality score systems; Novelty IQ Test™; Adaptability IQ Test™; etc.
• Brainstorming Tools include: Innovation Institute™ inventor tools; Adaptive Invention Machine™ www.InventionMachine.Biz, Adaptive Matrix™; etc.
• Material in sites may not be properly assembled, i.e. the dots may not be correctly connected. Elements may be connected when they shouldn’t be. Needed elements and warnings are often omitted due to needs for simplification; comprehensibility; focus; etc. Or it may include simple error.
Look at how this site provides no guarantees of any kind.
• Expect possible problems arising out of the use of this site material. You will agree not to indemnify the website or its web links. Hold the site and links harmless. Hold harmless the website’s and link’s: journalists, bloggers, directors, editors, inventors, independent contractors, employees, partners, investors, agents, successors, distributors, subsidiaries and related people and companies.
• Mediation & Arbitration: Readers agree first to mediation should problems arise. Failing that, we require arbitration with the loser paying legal costs. This site requests the American Arbitration Association in Solano County, California.
• Hold Harmless: Innovation Institute suggests creative thinkers at least receive some “hold harmless” statement for their ideas that may not turn out as hoped. Most innovative ideas fail. The few that succeed can earn millions or more. Write something out, or find sample hold harmless agreements on the web to show your lawyer. Authorized sites linking to this page request they be held harmless from their ideas, and if possible actions they may take relating to those ideas.
• Authorized sites (as defined herein) don’t force anyone to do something unethical or illegal. Authorized sites explore topics.
• Infringement: Discussions about infringement are brainstorming. Nobody is proven to be an infringer until proven in the court of law.
• Slander: Any fictional discussion about someone not mentioned by name is coincidental. Negative statements about someone are gossip, allegations or guesses unless a neutral third party can unquestionably show evidence. Authorized sites question matters, but are not stating them as irrefutable facts unless clear evidence is provided. Even purported facts could be incorrect. Brainstorm rights apply when discussing statements that can be misinterpreted as fact or slander.
• Bloggers are requested not to border on slanderous subject matter. Authorized sites might not filter blog comments.
Politics Of Innovation:
Review www.PoliticsOfInnovation.com to help adapt yourself to those who may be closed minded to positive innovation; so you may try to work with versus against those who fear loss of power or money from change. Those interested in the politics of innovation may web search Steven Kays’ ideas and read 1987’s top bestseller “Closing of the American Mind” written with Steven Kays’ fellow brainstorm friend and professor Allan Bloom.
Brainstorm For Best Solutions Before Making Agreements:
Did you find a better way to do something before committing to something that could have been improved? Brainstorming precedes agreements. Everything Innovation Institute, LLC and Invention Springboard puts out is brainstorming unless there’s a notarized contract.
Tips To Protect Creative Thinkers:
• It helps to let people know you are brainstorming and not spouting proven facts.
• Brainstorming is not a carte blanche from any liability. You can’t for example joke about certain matters while flying an airplane, threaten people with their life and such.
• While you might wish to have brainstorm rights on discussing any innovative subject from inventions to world solutions, much of the world is usually not open minded to creative thinking. People who can’t adapt to different view points easily snap when they hear something not complying to their view of what people “should say”. Emotions take over the narrow-minded person and all hopes of appealing to their rational mind may be lost.
• Beware that many websites target specific country audiences. Brainstorm rights may not apply in all countries. An innocuous statement in France or Japan will get you lynched in Iran or Zimbabwe. Closed minded people can take great offence leading to loss of job or friends.
• Remind people your ideas are just ideas. A common American saying is “I’m just saying…” which might suggest the listener not be upset if the postulation turns out to be unworthy upon further consideration.
• Ask your country’s liability attorneys about adding “not guaranteed” and other disclaimers to your ideas.
• Ethical Brainstorming: Remain ethical and include negatives when they are known. Don’t tolerate creative tricksters who lie by omission (not by mistake).
• Naturally nothing on this blog, nor linked sites are warranted. The non-guarantee also applies to any products, procedures or advice from this or other organizations as well. Don’t invest time or money in anything important without consulting ethical patent attorneys, general lawyers, business consultants, experienced investors and your knowledgeable friends. Also google the subject for alternative perspectives postulated.
• Consider having a “no verbal agreements” policy. For example Innovation Institute, LLC, and InventionSpringboard.Com require all agreements be signed and notarized to not confuse brainstorming from an actual promise.
Beware Of Irrational Skeptics:
• Sabotage? If your attempts to include those who fear change fail, be careful of their attempts to sabotage your efforts on or off the playing field. Those with power and influence often don’t practice fair play field rules www.FairPlayField.com.
• Word Games: Silver-tongued antagonists who have lost connection with the desire for truth and love of mankind often resort to word games by faking promises through crafty use of language described at www.NoWiggleRoom.com.
• Call on people who try to play some “act” on you. Things to watch out for include “dog pony show” tricks described at www.DogPonyShow.Net
There Are Different Types Of Rights:
• Don’t confuse brainstorm rights with patent rights, copyrights, or free speech. Yes, patent rights, copyrights and free speech rights are related to protections for brainstorming.
• Patent rights, provisional patent rights and copyrights confer monopoly rights to the owner (not necessarily the creator) of the creative work. Brainstorm rights are about protecting creative thinkers from those ideas that were not good enough.
• Brainstorm rights might not be a legal term commonly used in your country’s legal system. This site and authorized links to it may refer more to what we guess are US laws. The sites are not written by attorneys or other licensed parties. Hence hire honest legal counsel.
• Other rights: You probably have other rights not mentioned in links from authorized sites linking to this page.
Opinions & Ideas From One Or More People:
• One can brainstorm for ideas alone and/or with others. Brainstorming can be giving ideas to listeners. The brainstormer might hope that others may be stimulated with the brainstorming to share information and/or come up with ideas or concerns that might otherwise have not been shared. More information allows a greater vision of the big picture and many possibilities.
