DYI Patent Applications

There are dyi tragedies mounting out there.

There are countless bloopers laying in wait for independent inventors. Lots of these bloopers relate to their million dollar idea being old and/or fairly worthless commercially. More on those later.

There are a minority of independent inventions that have commercial potential.

That minority have a chance to fall into a blooper custom made for them, namely dyi their own patent and miss the opportunity of securing adequate patent protection.

Whatever they have produced as a provisional application, we can only hope that at lest some with a commercially valuable invention have the sense to retain a professional to convert the provisional into a decent patent application.

That conversion step is their last, their only, chance to get it right.
