Own a Patent?


Recommended Posts

I have not needed a patent but know a couple who did.

 

One Brother tried the DIY method. After 20 years, he was still trying.

 

The other Brother used an attorney. He later sold his invention for a great amount of money because he had the patent.

 

I know that most business people will advise using a patent attorney - that is, except for those businesses that advertise on TV that THEY can help you :eek:

I will echo that. I used one of those patent attorneys that advertised in Popular Mechanics. Proved to be a money pit, and slow. Someone else had the same idea and got it to market while I was still trying to figure out a way to pay my patent attorney. I was young and naive about what could or couldn't be patented and was not properly advised by my attorney. $1200 was a lot to waste 1960. :(
