My complaint is not defamatory in that it is my personal opinion. I never said it was a fact, but merely my suspicion.
In prior rebuttal Davison insinuated I did not review the contract sufficiently, etc. My experience was I did not get a workable prototype, was convinced to sign off on a design I hated, and taken for a lot of money for nothing to show for it. I was not under any delusions my idea would be accepted, however, not even having a protype after spending literally thousands of dollars is unacceptable to me. At no time was I antagonistic as you stated in your rebuttal and that could be defamatory, as well.
I was always polite and considered anything Davison representatives talked with me about. After reconsidering however, it seemed like just more of the marketing rhetoric and I preferred not waste any more time with a probable unsatisfactory result again. When I asked for my money back instead, suddenly I was met with a hostile attitude, as evidenced in your rebuttal. I am also not hiding behind an anonymous identity, as mentioned in the first answer to my complaint.
Anyone is welcome to contact me at email@example.com if they would like to know my experience with Davison. I also will share my experience with Davison at the Tennessee Inventors Network in Nashville at their monthly meetings.

I hired Davison to help me through the process of designing and licensing a product idea. I was wooed by a slick marketing person for progressively more money as the process went on, convinced to accept the change in my prototype design in the end, and of course it was not licensed after just one presentation to one company.
I wasted thousands of dollars and cashed out a retirement fund to get their help and got nothing and no workable prototype.
I saw my original design the next year on the market and think my idea was stolen from the marketer. I am embarrassed to have been taken by Davison and would not recommend them to anyone wanting to develop a product idea.
