INVENTOR TIPS

Inventor Tips

Learn About The Patent Process:
When you understand the basics of how to get a patent, you will know when invention marketers are making promises they, or the patent system, can't deliver.

Do Your Homework:
Check the marketers for references, ask for credentials, and then check them.

Be Realistic:
Not every invention is patentable. Be wary of any developer willing to promote virtually any invention.

Know Where Your Money is going:
Ask the marketer how your money will be spent. Be on Guard against large up-front fees of $5,000-$20,000.

Protect Your Rights:
Do Not disclose your invention to any developer over the phone before signing a confidentiality agreement. You could forfeit valuable patent rights.

Track Your Invention's Progress:
Deal directly with a patent attorney who will be handling your patent application. There are many good patent attorneys that can help you. The United States Patent & Trademark Office maintains a nationwide register of patent attorneys who meet legal, scientific, and technical requirements.
