By John Donovan

Shell is still energetically trawling the world for other people’s ideas:” See article below: “Student Team From USA Recognized As Most Innovative In Shell Ideas360 Program“.

Shell has used a number of elaborate schemes under different names – GameChanger, Ideas360 etc – in an attempt to entice innovators into disclosing their ideas to the predatory oil giant. All very well, providing Shell does not steal the ideas caught in their country wide nets.

From my perspective, as a person who has repeatedly successfully sued Shell for stealing my ideas, it is a genuine concern. I am not alone. read more

Think Twice Before Disclosing An Idea To Shell

By John Donovan

I see that Shell is still energetically trawling for other people’s ideas, this time in India and Singapore.

Shell has used a number of elaborate schemes under different names – GameChanger, Ideas360 etc – in an attempt to entice innovators into disclosing their ideas.

The latest vehicles are Shell #makethefuture Accelerator India 2017 and Make the Future Singapore.

All very well, providing Shell does not steal the ideas caught in their country wide nets.

That might seem a preposterous and libellous suggestion, but from my perspective, it is a genuine concern. read more

The Shell Ideas360 contest has been launched in Qatar, directed at university students.  This is first time the scheme has been introduced into the Middle East.

Knowing from personal experience the track record of Royal Dutch Shell in stealing ideas, I must say that I am staggered by the audacity of Shell in trying to draw (trick?) inventors into entrusting the ruthless unprincipled oil giant with their brainchild.  The scheme (scam?) is run in various guises, including Shell GameChanger,  Shell Ideas360 and Shell Innovation Challenge.
