How Do I Protect My Idea Outside Florida and the United States?

If you are an inventor interested in protecting your idea outside the United States or mitigating foreign imports from China that impact your market share & profit margins, then my number 1 suggestion is to ask yourself this question:   How ambitious are your commercial expansion goals outside the United States? Once you pose this question, it helps formulate a strategy for foreign filings, since you could choose to target ONE country or multiple nations in the initial application.  This of course causes some anxiety for inventors since it can be an overwhelming thought. However, there is a simple way to approach this dilemma:  I suggest filing the initial patent in the United States since this automatically protects you from foreign imports, including those from China.     The inventor then has a full 12 months to consider additional countries that he may wish to file patent protection for his idea or product. Your patent attorney can help you with this selection process [

Look Around: The Simplest Ideas Have Made Inventors Millions…

Just because your idea seems simple does not mean it does not have the power to disrupt an entire industry. I come across inventors regularly who tell me they were too embarrassed or afraid to see a patent attorney because they felt their idea did not have the complexity or scale to match those currently on shelves or in production. When I look around, some of the simplest ideas have revolutionized industries and generated millions of dollars in revenues for the inventor. The key thing I want you to take away from this video is that to ultimately make money from your idea you have to craft a patent with teeth so rivals cannot make minor modifications to your idea and get around your rights.
