Do you have a great invention idea you know can make millions? Are you looking for invention help to get started?
In this article, you will learn the first step you must take to getting a patent on your idea or invention, directly from a U.S. Patent Attorney.
To get started with your patent or trademark, here is first step, "The Record of Invention," of the invention help you will need:
1. Record or Document Your Invention-
The US is a "first to invent" country verses a "first to file" country; therefore, you are advised to document your conception and reduction to practice. How does one do this? Here's a start:
•Document the conception of your invention and its reduction to practice (the knowledge of making) your invention- You can do this in a Composition book, or something you can't add pages to.
NOTE: The notebook you choose can't be a 3-ring or coil bound notebook. The most critical part of this process is to use a notebook that has continual paging, meaning the pages can't easily rip out.
•Answer who, what, when, where, why, and how questions of your discovery - Simply document all the pertinent details of your new masterpiece! Remember, the U.S. is a "first to invent" country which means the first person to document their invention is awarded the patent....not the first person to rush to the patent office.
Now it's time to get started with your patent. Be sure to complete this step thoroughly before you move on to step 2. Good luck!
