There many people that have had ideas and turned them to visible concepts as a result of dedication and hard work. Due to excitements they would want to share with friends and family of what they have been able to do, but anxiety crops in, since they do not know whether to trust anybody. Oh, this is normal for individuals that have been able to come up with long term pieces of hard work, from all ages.
At this point one should make an appointment with the available Patent lawyer/s so as to seek an expert opinion and advice concerning the matter. There is a need for a protection for your new invention, before you are able to fill some sort of paperwork for you to receive a patent marking the creation a sole property. Your first step to this long and straining process should include a letter that will guarantee some form of confidentiality if someone duplicates what you have already created and are claiming to be their own creations. The lawyer that you make an appointment with should accommodate you within their dairy with a letter that has the date and is duly signed. This action from the Patent lawyer/s will give you some assurance and comfort as you walk through the entire process.
If the creation you have requires some expertise from a manufacturing entity, a signed letter should be provided by the manufacturing entity also so as to provide with confidentiality if anything goes wrong. This sound like much, but a good patent attorney will advise you for this since anything less than this wouldn’t hold any weight in a court in case of any bleach. You should keep custody of your original blueprints as proof of ownership. The blueprints should have signatures and dates on them. If possible have them in a lock box for safekeeping in your local bank.
Patent lawyer/s will give you valuable advice in the interim stages so it is important for you to remain in contact with them. A necessary application papers will also be sent that should be filled in its entirety, and make sure you include the copy of your blueprints. It would be challenging for if you for some reason decide to neglect submitting completed forms, paying an application fee and submitting the copy blueprint. These would be termed as a misstep and the government will return your application and will have to start all over again.
This would only create anxiety and panic, however, your patent attorney should be able to explain to you so that you can remain calm. After following the right procedure within months your patent should have been accepted.
