Protect Your Idea
Get a patent if possible. There is no better protection.
Don’t be ripped off by patent lawyers. That’s money you can’t afford to spend.
Make sure you understand what’s involved in getting a patent.
If you can’t get a patent or can’t afford it just forget about it and get your product to the market as soon as possible. Being the first to the market is still very important.
Patent royalties are tax free so if you can get one – get one.
