What are the dangers of talking to a big company that deals with stuff along the lines of my patent.  I would think they would just change it up a bit and sell their own version of it.  Companies are making things to get around my version now it seems.  I just haven't looked into how much those items are selling.   In my opinion, my patent is still has features that the products they have come up with don't do, or lack there of.  How dangerous would it be to go to one of those companies about buying my patent?  
 
Thanks

Unfortunately, your questions are too difficult to answer in the abstract. No one on this forum will be able to give you advice on selling or offering the invention (or patent) for sale without specific knowledge of the patent/invention, you, the market, competitors and etc.  
 
If you are seriously considering selling your patent, speak to a patent attorney that can provide advice specific to your invention. You can email me joshsmith@mcdonaldhopkins.com to set up a time for a free consultation.

The market price of used newsprint is about $300/ton. I believe that glossy magazine paper commands a lower price (higher clay content), so perhaps the Playboys are worth $200/ton or $0.10/lb.  So if your stack of magazines weight 25 lbs, you may have $2.50 worth of magazines.
