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 Reply 3 of 3 trevorm Posts: 841member October 22, 2002 4:14AM I dont know costs or urlsbut 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 plantCheck the US patent office for all the details you need to know <a href="http://www.uspto.gov/" target="_blank">Webpage</a> Sign In or Register to comment.
