quote:Originally posted by Andrew K Fletchertheoretically, you would need to find yourself a champion. First, post your discovery in your bank for safe keeping with full details, this should be stamped and dated on receipt and will incur a minuscule charge for a year, which can be renewed yearly. This will prove the solution is yours alone, should it be contested down the road.

quote:In the U.K. you automatically get full rights and protection to your own literature, so this will ensure you get a chance to prove your case in a courtroom should it be infringed upon.Much cheaper than defending a patent, and publication is fully in your control, not some stupid rule in a patent office that says on x date we publish your patent for the world to copy and alter slightly in order to get around the infringement laws.

quote:Originally posted by tekiCould the logic of the system and thus all devices created thereby, be patented? If it could be worded such, that all grounds were covered, meaning you couldn't create a similiar device without using the logic - would that be what you're refering to?
quote:Isn't there something like secret patents? Patents protected by goverments and/or orginizations in secrecy? Wouldn't a patent of this nature, be something of interest to keep secret, because of the obvious advantages of being the only country/enclave with such technology/capability?
quote:To me, it appears that somehow it is more simple to develop such a system, than to "get away with it". Really does look to be a system designed to damage the inventor/discoverer. I had been adviced, that if ever someone ever made something like that possible, the real complicated stuff began after everything is completed/ready.
quote:Originally posted by ukmickyYou need to be quite clear and specific with the wording and any drawings,. if your not then you risk losing any court case and your patent if someone steals your idea because your patent wasn't specific or detailed enough.
