Your Light Bulb Moment

On Oct. 21, 1879, Thomas Edison invented a workable electric light at his laboratory in Menlo Park, N.J.

What should you do when you have an invention (i.e. your light bulb moment)?

The first step should be document the conception of your invention by completing an Invention Disclosure Form.  After the form is completed, have the Invention Disclosure Form notarized.  My office will notice your Invention Disclosure Form for you for free.

Of course, conceiving of an invention and documenting it is only the start.  For guidance on how to use the patent system to protect and monetize your invention, you should contact a Registered Patent Attorney.  In Florida, that person should also be a Florida Bar Board Certified Intellectual Property Attorney with experience in patent prosecution.
