How To Patent an Idea
so it wil be Protected


When you are going to create a company with an innovative idea or product, the best thing to avoid plagiarism and that others take ownership of that idea and, therefore, obtain the relevant benefits, we advise you to protect it. Discover how to patent an invention idea or product and stop worrying about someone taking your idea.

Do you have an idea, an invention, a creation of those that can change the world and worry about how to protect it legally? Our experience leads us to define in this post several points to follow to know how to protect our creations and answer the question:

How can I protect my idea? How can I patent my idea? What steps should I follow to patent my idea? How to patent an invention idea so it will not be taken? We will see how to protect our products in three simple steps:


The first to be clear about the purpose of his invention, of his creation.

Keep the secret: The second is not to disclose. I mean, do not make it known

Advice: The third is to go to a specialized lawyer who can help you

1- Document the idea to patent

The first step is to be clear about the object of your invention. That is, we will have to answer a few questions to see if what we want to protect is possible. For example, we will have to answer the following questions:

What are you going to protect?

What it intends to bring as new with respect to what already exists.

What already exists in the market?

What you contribute as a differentiator with respect to what already exists?

What characteristics make up your invention?

What drawings of your design, invention or object you have available and necessary to attach to the invention request?

What description or summary of the product has been made?

In short, they are a series of necessary documents where it is clearly defined what you contribute as new and therefore it is patentable. This fundamental point because in that way it will be faithfully reflected what it is that you are protecting. It is fundamental that whoever is going to examine the object of his invention has clear what it is that you are protecting as new.

2 - Keep the secret of your invention

Once we have clear what is the object of his invention, it is important not to disclose it. That is, it is not known by third parties. This way we will prevent anyone from anticipating you and proceed to register. Either a design, either patent in the case of the invention in front of you.

It is good to remember that legal system who registers first is the one who acquires the property. It is very tempting to share with friends or family the object of your invention. What you are bringing as new probably because it really is attractive. This point is really important because from our experience we have seen many conflicts arising precisely from the lack of secrecy before submitting the corresponding patent application, design, copyright, before the registration of intellectual property.

3 - Advice

See a specialized lawyer. At that point, it is also essential because what is needed from that specialized lawyer is that he has proven knowledge and experience. We do not want that to be written by anyone. It is very easy to go to your usual adviser, a family member, although we do not recommend it in any case because precisely because of this lack of expertise in the matter can cause us important problems a posterior because your invention is not properly protected.

Remember that we are protecting your intangible asset, your invention, your great idea, so it is essential that you take into account the three steps mentioned.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
