Before getting to the engine
and its engineering
I'm going to make a few observations, and express a few acerbic
I'm also going to relate a few
learned while patenting and working on my inventions which I expect
help other inventors protect their endeavors.
If you're an individual who
might some day
file for a patent in the U.S. and wish to avoid the problems I've
while patenting and developing a substantial new technology, I suggest
you use a patent attorney.
Subsisting on a social security
pension negated this option for me.
In addition to filing your
patent at the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), use the Patent
Treaty and file additional applications in at least two other
Multiple filling will give your
two additional "secured" locations for reference.
The foreign patent platform
can still be relied upon for original content, in the event that
records, your attorneys records, and the PTO records are all criminally
modified (not an impossibility).
Your attorney might even advise
initial application in a foreign country.
