Protecting your New Invention
O.K. so you have an Idea for an invention. This invention could be big or small. Your invention may even only be a simple idea at the moment. Nevertheless, you are going to want to make sure to protect yourself from getting your idea stolen and keeping your idea yours.
New inventions and ideas are the life blood of our economy, technology and innovation. Inventions come in all shapes and sizes. What do you do to make your invention known but to make the idea your property and keep others from copying it for their own profit?
The answer to this is simple. Keep it private until you've completely protected yourself from theft. Often times we tend to broadcast our new wonderful inventions and ideas until everyone knows about it without thinking of the consequences of sharing such priveledged information to the rest of the public. But here is the catch, in order for your new invention idea to go anywhere in this world, it has to be known. This is the simple truth of the business world. The information age has proved to us that nothing is more sacred than whats in our own heads.
Getting a new invention patent may help in protecting yourself from information theft and keeping your intellectual property safe. When you patent your new idea, it legally becomes yours. Be careful also when getting a invention patent there are companies out there that will scam you and take your idea. First before going to a patent organization make sure to check with the better business bureau to see if the company is legitimate. Then talk to other inventors that have used thier services. You will thank yourself later.
Another good idea is to get a Patent Attorney. A patent attorney, patent agent or patent lawyer can help you act as a legal representative in keeping your new invention idea safe from idea theft. A patent attorney is the best way to have legal representation for you patented product or services. If you are serious about your idea, then this is a good way to be safe all the way to the bank.
Remember, your information is valuable. Your ideas are valuable. Be extremely cautious when telling even friends and relatives unless you are completely sure about their intentions and keeping ideas to themselves. It can be a dog eat dog world out there and if you want to take it as far as you can without fault, it is better to be safer than sorry. After you get the patent and after you work out all the bugs then and only then can you share your information with confidence and have complete protection over your product, idea or invention.
