Dear Inventor,
Below, find a handful of requirements your invention must meet before we can go further with our advisory. Your invention: *

1. Must be your own
You must be the original creator of the idea submission and have the exclusive right to submit it to CARIAS. You agree not to upload images that belong to someone else as a part of your idea.

2. Must be original
The purpose of CARIAS is first and foremost to commercialize ideas. This means we’re looking for new ideas that solves a real problem. We cannot commercialize ideas/inventions that already exist. We therefore cannot offer advice on ideas / inventions that have the following properties:• Virtually the same product is being sold already• Current products solve the problem in a better way• A published patent or concept already exists for the idea• The idea is not different enough to compete in an already saturatedmarket• The idea combines different existing features together without a clearbenefitPlease make sure your idea is one of a kind before submitting. Search the web for existing patents, products, and concepts.

3. Must be complete - no placeholders
While you may edit content after submitting your idea, please don't submit incomplete ideas. Incomplete submissions with minimal images and text or ones that say "images coming soon" (or something similar) are not permitted.

4. Keep it appropriate
We will not handle ideas/inventions related to the below topics. We will decide how a submission fits these standards at our discretion.• Death, killing, blood, terrorism, or torture• Racism, bullying, or cruelty to animals• Contesting norms, policies, procedures, and decisions made by staff

5. Make it clear and legible
Be precise and take your time. Clear grammar and spelling are essential to our ability to understand your idea. Your submission title, description, problem, and solution text should be clearly understood. Please make sure your submission is in English.
