Steps a diagram of steps for every Invention Idea.

I created Inventor Start Kit after listening to 1000s of inventors struggle with “I have a new idea what do I do now?” As a patent attorney, my advice to inventors is: before you disclose your new idea to a stranger or spend $1000s of dollars let me walk you through 3 steps using 2 of my invention to teach you how to evaluate whether you have an idea that can be protected with a patent.

It’s in the privacy of your home and it’s Free!

Get started today by downloading Inventor Start Kit.  You can do this and I will walk you through the process step-by-step. This is going to be fun! So dream Big!

Inventor Start Kit downloads here and receive an email with an attachment with easy to follow instructions, invention help, inventor forms, and samples to privately and correctly document and research your new idea.

If you’re an aspiring inventor looking for invention help, having a free invention kit can help provide a fast track to taking your new idea from the idea phase forward, from one phase of your new idea to the next, likely saving you time and countless dollars in professional service fees.

This is especially true if you’re a “do it yourself” inventor, as these downloads of invention information provide detailed “how to” instructions and inventor help for those wishing to handle initial review, research, and evaluation on their own.

If you are an app inventor or are trying to patent a Business Method.

    Inventor Warning:
  • Inventors should become accustomed to guarding against any “offer for sale, sell, or public use” of your new idea prior to filing a patent application! See Provisional Patent Application
  • Inventors should become accustomed to guarding against any use of their new idea in public “publicly disclosure” rather if you must disclose to a trusted third party, disclose under a Non Disclosure Agreement.  If the inventor has made a public disclosure you have one (1) year to file a US patent application.  Therefore, file a Provisional Patent Application before making a public disclosure.

Why Document your New Idea?

There are many reasons why an inventor should spend time document each new idea.  First, documenting your idea causes you to think critically about your idea and causes you to identify the new parts and features of your new idea.  Steps include, creating a title for your new idea,  a list of parts and features of your new idea, a list of advantages of your idea over the existing products on the market, a drawing or picture showing your idea, a drawing or picture showing your idea disassembled, a drawing or picture showing your idea in use, or maybe you have built a prototype of your new idea.

Why perform Product Research?
There are many reasons why an inventor should spend time searching and educating themselves about existing products, which are similar or related to the inventor’s idea.  First, in order for your new idea to be patentable it must be new.  To be new or novel, means you typically have a new part, element, feature, or step in a process that no other product contains.  To know if you have a new new part, element, feature, or step in a process you must research all of the existing products on the market.  Where do you look for existing products?  Search online, in stores, search or attend trade shows, and search industry magazines.   Collect information, publications, and pictures of these products and identify their parts and features. Step back and compare your invention’s list of parts to the existing products found during your product research and determine whether you have a new part or feature.  If yes, you may have a new idea that may be protected by a patent.

Why perform a Patent Search?
There are many reasons why an inventor should spend time searching and educating themselves about existing patents and published patent applications, which are similar or related to the inventor’s idea.  First, in order for your new idea to be patentable it must be new or novel.  To be new or novel, means you typically have a new part, element, feature, or step in a process that no other patent contains.  To know if you have a new part, element, feature, or step in a process you must research all of the existing patents and published patent applications.  Where do you look for existing patents?  Search online, at USPTO website.  Download pdf files of any relevant patents and published patent applications  and identify their parts and features. Step back and compare your invention’s list of parts to the parts and features found during your patent research and determine whether you have a new part or feature.  If yes, you may have a new idea that can be protected by a patent.

You the inventor are reminded that any public use, offer for sale or sale, or publication of the invention may prohibit the granting of a U. S. patent.  Foreign patent laws in this regard may be much more restrictive than U.S. law.  Protect your invention by first filing a utility patent application (whether a provisional or regular patent application).

Things to review before filing a patent application:

  • Do not disclose your new idea invention to a third party before filing a patent application unless you trust such third party and they sign a Non Disclosure Agreement
  • Upon filing a US provisional patent application you can say you are “patent pending” but eventually you will need to file a regular or non provisional patent application within one year of your provisional patent application filing date
  • Since the US has become a first to file country it is important to file a patent application as soon as possible
  • Provisional patent applications have less formal requirements, especially regarding drawings allowing drawings, sketches, pictures, marketing materials, business plans, etc. and provisional patent applications have much lower filing fees
  • During the year be diligent in development, prototyping, manufacturing, marketing and licensing your provisional patent application.
  • If you make improvements to your new invention idea filed in the provisional patent you can file another provisional patent application to cover any improvements during the year
  • Do not disclose your provisional patent number or the filing date
  • There is no such thing as a “issued provisional patent” that is issued by the US Patent Office, rather, what you file is called a US provisional patent application and its a temporary
