Denny: "Did you guys file a Patent before some big corporation steals your deal????"
No, we didn't. I suppose that even if we had, some little detail could be changed a small bit, and someone else could "legally" make them anyway. One thing about it, in my heart I am pretty sure that I came up with the idea first.
And what's more, it is all pretty well documented in these bull session archives.
Soapweed, Take one of your videos and write the history of your invention down and mail it to yourself - via
Registered Mail- Return Recept Requested. Keep it sealed in a safe place.
You might be glad you did.
It's called a "Poor Man's Copyright" and has held up in court.
The Copyright and Patent Attorney I have on retainer suggested it to me to do before I send him my material to copyright. It's quick, easy, and cheap.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
