New inventors are often afraid to talk to anyone about their ideas for fear that they will be stolen. They have only a vague understanding of patents and trademarks. They don’t know if, when, or how to hire a patent attorney and may also lack the knowledge on how to successfully market inventions. As a new, independent inventor, this book will assist you as you navigate through the process from initial idea to successful commercial product. It tells you not just what to do, but exactly how to do it. Imagine the satisfaction of seeing your idea patented and/or trademarked! This book was written to help you creative but inexperienced independent inventors who have ideas for new products for consumers and commercial industries. Your product may include new and better tools, manufacturing fixtures, toys, medical equipment, holiday decorations, or be one of many other ideas for new inventions designed for work, play, and everyday living.
