log onto the us patent website. there is a ton of information and a phone number you can call to ask questions. basically, until a person files a patent and it is approved, there is no patent protection. UNLESS, he has an inventors log book with a date on it. then he can spend tons of money on expensive patent attorneys to sue whom ever tries to patent what he calls his idea.


Now, on the flip side, i have an improvement to an existing product. the company that makes the product while they say are sending me a non disclosure agreement, havent./ All i want to do is sell my improvement invention to either the guy in china who monitors the US patent website for new inventions so he can produce it cheap and make millions off it (of course after he either agrees to royalties for me for an outright price) or sell it or license it to some one who wants to manufacture it and sell it and make tons of cash. Any one have any pointers, suggestions or even by chance know that guy over in china and how i can get ahold of him????
