A patenting tip for you…from Eric Frickey, Business Consultant
Thinking about obtaining a patent for your idea? A crucial first step would be to get a patent search and legal opinion from a registered patent attorney. The few hundred dollars spent on the search and opinion could save you thousands in patent drafting and prosecution costs. Many inventors take it upon themselves to do their own searches but do not have the expansive resources of these professionals. Make sure you locate a patent attorney that is registered with the United States Patent & Trademark Office.
