Complaint Review: Campbell Soup Company
Campbell Soup Company1 Campbell Place Camden, New Jersey U.S.A.
Campbell Soup Company ripped off my 'pop top soup can idea' that I submitted to them in 1998--(please help me get my money back) *REBUTTALS
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Pop top on Campbells soup
*Consumer Suggestion: Royalties and intelectual property rights
*Consumer Comment: I generally hate lawyers, but.....
*Consumer Comment: Not so fast
*Consumer Comment: Another idea/invention
*Consumer Suggestion: No Problem! I respect the policies of this site
*Consumer Suggestion: Comments from an Intellectual Property Attorney
*Consumer Comment: The pop top inventor was my neighbor growing up
*Consumer Comment: Sympathetic
*0: In all honesty, as a layperson, I feel you have no claim.
*0: Maybe next you can go after Firestone for taking your wheel invention.
I contacted them about this demanding that they pay me since they used my idea without compensation and without having me waive my rights to it. Their lawyer called on the phone as well as sent a 'kiss off' letter to me, although admitting that they have records of my submittal. I then sent them a letter asking for proof that they knew of the 'pop top soup can idea' as well as seriously considered using it before my submittal to them. NO REPLY!
Now if they did have proof, I don't think they would be so shy as to NOT show it to me to get me to shut up and not pursue legal action against them. They know I can't afford to take them on in court so they just sit back and take advantage of the situation they have me in.
In my opinion, I am entitled to a bare minimum of the low $100,000's for their use of my submittal which has generated untold millions of dollars for them. What angers me the most is the audacity this corporation has in regards to their position of power.
I have copies of our correspondence, not to mention they admitted to having my submittal in a letter they sent back to me.
If the people behind this website can help me collect what is rightfully mine, I have no problem paying a fee on what you help me collect from the Campbell Soup Company.
