ED Magedson – Founder
Absolutely New, Inc.650 Townsend St. Ste 475 San Francisco, California United States of America
The first year signing with Absolutely New, I was told they would be attending trade shows and representing my invention at each trade show. Because Absolutely New was negligent and lax in doing their job of getting the product page and CD done in a timely fashion, my invention ws not represented in the 2008 International Housewares Show at McCormick Place in Chicago. I was at the show, visited the booth. This year, I was the 2009 International Housewares Show, and visited Absolutely New booth (L22338). I met with Jeremy Milk, Director, Marketing Communications. I introduced myself, told him I had been with Absolutely New since January 2008, and described my invention. He was puzzled, had never heard of me, or of my intention. I mentioned Ken Wong, whom he had never heard of. He said he came on board last year, and had heard of Serena Soo. Everything Absolutely New promised they would do, never materialized. They did not represent me at Trade shows in 2008, because they did not get their part of the job done, and this year they did not represent me. I was told by Serena Soo, that I would have someone working on behalf of my invention at the 2009 Trade Show. That was not the case. I recently reviewed my signed contract with Absolutely New, signed by me on January 7, 2008, signed by Dave Stickel on January 4, 2008, and approved by an executive John Ruegl (?) signed January 4, 2008. The contract states Absolutely New was to deliver to me the design rendering within 60 days, which they did not do, and they were to get the remaineder of the product design within 90 days, including the CD-ROM. I dd not received the CD, until July 2008, so they violated the contract and prevented me from any representation at any Trade Shows as they agreed.
