If you came up with a jam up idea for something that you know would be useful to every household, how would you go about getting a patent on it without getting your idea stolen?

send it to me Jo and Iill see if I can help ya out ;-) ;-)

seriously I would contact the U.S. patent office surely they could tell ya

Can't remember exactly who it was but I read about Edison or someone like that who worked at the patent office and he alledgedly stole a bunch of his inventions. I can't let this happen. Its not that I don't trust the government but its just that I don't trust the government.

(1) Order the entire US patent database on CD-ROM disks.

(2) Send to Feds by certified delivery your patent with proper documentation and fees.

We've been sharing and/or stealing moonshine recipes for years. Is yours that much better?

(But seriously... best of luck to you!)

Ain't going to count my money yet but if I can put it together, I know who will buy it and merchandize it. Best of all it will be very affordable. Its so simple of an idea its brilliant. (of course it would have to be simple for me to come up with it)

Once again, I wish you the best of luck.

That being said however, if you have Billy Myers or someone like that hawking it on tv all the while hollering at me about how good it is, I'm going to just have to drive over there and slap you silly! :lol2:

If you put super glue on your forehead, then hold half a carrot there for five minutes, it sticks nicely. You can then slide a roll of toilet paper over the carrot and trim the carrot to length. This is the best possible fix I had found for beating your head against the wall.

I took pictures of the assembly, did a write up on it, made two copies, put them in envelopes and mailed them to myself. That way if someone DID still my invention, I had post marked sealed evidence for the judge.

I then went to the patent office. For some strange reason they were not impressed. They recommended a padded room instead.

Well there are processes you need to go through. You need to establish the art. You need to have someone witness the art. You need to date the art. You need to do a patent search. Maybe you should do the later first and see when the prior art was filed and what it covered (how extensive).

If you want to do all that yourself and then file only to be rejected because you didn't dot an "I" or cross a "T" or because there was prior art then feel free. If you've done all the ground work an attorney can't "steal" your invention.

And there's always Ron Popiel so if you don't or won't trust a patent attorney by all means go to someone like him. Or pick someone off the street which is about as safe as going to Mr. Popiel.

I've filed twice and been rejected both times. The process is complicated and difficult and the language is impossible to understand.

Hey, I know. Get Alice to handle it for you. :lol:

After the big trip I made down in October to look after my interest in the Imbalancer joint venture it hurts to find out that we are getting cut out of the big money thats starting to roll in. I think Jo's bookkeepr that he fired was fixin to blow the whistle so Jo had to frame him on that tax issue so he could give him the boot.........yep we are gettin wise to these shenanigans :mrgreen:
