Patent Your Brainstorm
Do you remember when you were young, what was that one thing you always wanted to do? Do you even remember it was it your dream to be an inventor? Did you find all sorts of problems to solve? Kids are great inventors. Did you want to invent a better kickstand for your bike, a hose that did not tangle, how about turning off the light from the safety and warmth of your bed? Kids are the best inventors because they do not have to worry about the ramifications of creating something that solves a problem for millions of people.
But now you are the inventor. Do you still try to solve the problems in your’s and millions of other daily lives? The problem is that now you know everything there is to know about being an inventor. Or do you, are there maybe five possible things you do not know about getting a patent for your newest invention? For most Inventors, you are all the Subject Matter Experts, finding five things you do not know on this topic will be difficult. But let’s give it a shot.
The Inventor: Brainstorm is a great word, and if you are an inventor, your brain is most likely in a creative storm most of the time. It is a gift. When you know you have come up with a product that is unique and useful, the priority is to document that idea from the very first thought. Your idea may be great, but it is worthless without written proof that you developed the idea. Outline the idea, do a task analysis of each step that development will require. Documenting your invention from start to finish is your number one step.
Research: Research and research some more. You have to ensure your idea is as unique and useful as you think it is. It is tempting to drift from your original idea when you are deep in the research. Try to stick with the original idea. That is why your outline and task analysis is important. Stick to it like a road map. Make sure that your wonderful idea does not already exist. Researching every aspect of your idea and the development of your invention is the second step you will want to follow.
Create a Prototype: Creating a prototype can be a stumbling block for some inventors. Keep in mind the things you are good at and the things that interest you. Staying close to the things you know will help you not only create a better prototype but also stay within your realm of knowledge. It is important to take your great idea from inception to completion and especially implementation.
Help for Inventors: Hire a patent Lawyer for U.S. Patents as well as International Patents. Before you hire Lawyers to ensure they know the international rules, for example, International Intellectual Property Law Israel specializes in preparing and prosecuting domestic and foreign patent applications in a variety of technological areas. Step number four.
Implementation: As your attorney assists you in the legalities if implementing, ensure that the firm’s commitment to you is to provide more than just the legal council. When it comes to being a patent client, your attorney needs to inform you as you approach implementation. Keep in mind trademark and copyright.
Now the step you always want to remember is to invent like a child, think like a child and make sure your attorney worries about everything you did not think about when you were inventing child.
