A: As per California law, if you believe that your invention and idea have been stolen by Davidson's Invent and marketed without your consent, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit for intellectual property infringement. However, whether or not you have a valid case against Davidson's Invent depends on the specific details of your situation, including any agreements or contracts you may have had with the company, and the strength of your evidence supporting your claim.

If you have evidence to support your claim that Davidson's Invent stole your invention and idea, you may be able to pursue legal action against them. This may involve filing a lawsuit for patent or trademark infringement, or pursuing other legal remedies available to protect your intellectual property rights.

It is important to note that intellectual property law can be complex, and litigation can be costly and time-consuming. Before pursuing legal action, it is recommended that you consult with a licensed attorney who is experienced in intellectual property law and has knowledge of California law. They can help you evaluate your options and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

If you do decide to pursue legal action against Davidson's Invent, it is important to gather and preserve any evidence supporting your claim, including any documentation or correspondence related to your invention or idea, and any proof of Davidson's Invent's use of your invention or idea without your consent.
