Leslie

That price for the patent is so expensive. Is that more than the old way? I've only done provisional patents.

Mike

This is dangerous, as it allows a company to "see" a concept at the early stages, perhaps even keep a prototype, then go ahead and draw up the docs to apply for the patent before the inventor has a chance to. It will bring added expense to those working in free lance product development as it is often that multiple concepts are shown to several clients, and the patenting process generally isn't started until it is fiscally reasonable to do so. Unless I am missing something, this bodes trouble.

Evandy

I agree with Mike and Leslie. Although, I am new to doing a patent. I filed for my first patent in December 2008 and it has been returned several times. The latest is rejection for claim. Can't afford patent attorney.

P.S. I used the book "Patent it Yourself" by a patent attorney David Pressman.
