    You have to do research for prior art, and you usually get a lawyer to walk you through it all. I forget what it costs to file it, but that usually isn't the expensive part.

    You can go to the patent office web site for more information - i forget the url, just google it

    I dont know costs or urls

    but it is alot

    -You will need to get yourself a Patent Attorney to handle the legal side of things

    -You will have to do research on anthing similar or for anything prior to your design

    -Then you file the right sort of application depending on if it is an invention, design or plant

    Check the US patent office for all the details you need to know <a href=""; target="_blank">Webpage</a>
