Davison Design and Development- July 14/08 - PITTSBURGH (AP Wire) – A Pittsburgh-based invention-promotion firm agreed to settle a lawsuit brought by the Federal Trade Commission and will pay nearly $11 million to thousands of novice inventors who got little bang for their buck. Davison Inc. promised to market inventions, but delivered little to inventors, the FTC said. Fewer than 1 percent of the company's clients earned more from their inventions than they paid Davison to market the devices.
