Recently (06-06-06), an offshore OEM (Original Equipment Mfg) made an offer for an exclusive 5 year license to distribute my door closer inventions; see http://doorbutler.com</A>.
This firm currently makes 3MM/yr (million/year), and projects distribution of 5MM/yr in the fifth year. Total global market consumption for closers is approx 12MM/yr.
They have agreed to independent audit of open books; litigation in USA; stiff restitution and risk of loosing license if fraud is ever determined.
Question: What are the risks of dealing w/ offshore mfgs; and how do I best monitor my inventions once in their possession?
