Just read, "Making Money off Ideas" in Farm Show, vol 34, no 4, 2010. www.gismoplans.com is a website where you can upload your plans and contact info, and people get to see your ideas and potentially buy them. 'Tis a resource for inventors of all sorts.

A friend of mine is trying to sell her idea (for a TV series), it is legal hell.

It's probably easier to sell your ideas if you don't want any credit for having had them, in other words, selling all your rights to the idea.

You can also do "licensing" in which yu sell your ideas to companies and then they give you a roalty when they seel some of whatever it is. I have been looking into this for some time and am going to a convention for this soon.

My friend is dealing with the legal aspects of licensing, at great expense.  Horrible lawyer bills.
