    Default Anyone applied for a patent here?

    Not specific questions about the product. More about the process.
    Thank you.

    YES.

    i did apply for a patent.. (not on a gun part)... & Greg Clark has actually gotten a couple.

    IF you have something that can go commercial & be profitable? sure! go for it.

    if not? its all about how much you need the cash you spend ot get it just for bragging rights.

    a good patent lawyer to do the legwork isnt free.

    lots of people say you can do it on your own by yourself.. im sure some of the people here can, but for the average joe out here on the net? you need help to set it up where its worth more than the paper its printed on.

    lots of self submitted patent applications end up being useless or worked around by someone else...

    Didn't think it would be EZ. Not firearms related. That's for the hobby I love.

    Yeah,definitely commercial. How much "leg"work can I do?

    Thinking a production and projected 100,000 units sold with a 5-10% profit potential.
    Not initial run of course.

    Maybe ergo-mechanical design would be the better wordage. 1000 units to amortize the initial expenditure.
    I do have access to a local guy on another idea. An ophthalmologist that changed corrective vision technology.
    Have to check the patent background before investing.

    The one thing about a patent, is you also have to be willing to defend it. That will be the pricey part as well. If you make a good product, and it really starts to sell a big company will just make a small tweak and start selling it. You will need deep pockets to defend that patent. I have patents through work, and our company rarely if ever defends our patents. It is more to protect us from being sued for infringement. It is a long process to actually get the patent as well. Our stuff is long into production before the actual patent is issued.

    Thanks 00red? Sorry about the name thing. Yeah, one idea I have would probably get me sued for infringement. Since it is an adaptation on not one,but two products it would probably be in litigation before the first shipment got here. By two separate and distinct companies. Don't think I want to go there. Thank you for the input.
