Re: Website

If you are unsure whether a website is not authorized for Trademark and Patent sharing of ideas, you should not use it to share your idea. The rational for this is that many websites like the current one at issue could be a scam and set up to get ideas of other people while giving false information that the idea is protected. The best way to get a idea or invention patent is talk to a licensed Intellectual Property Attorney and get a nondisclosure agreement. The attorney will guide you to patenting your idea in order for you to have rights to the specific idea or invention.

If you are looking for a legitimate attorney to help you patent your ideas, your best course of action would be to look up your local bar association and see what intellectual property or patent lawyers are in your area. That way you can be absolutely sure that your idea will stay secret between you and your attorney and that the attorney you are talking too is actually legitimate.

The are many patent websites out there claiming to be authorized but actually they are not. You can check the ICANN if the domain name is registered. Here are some other ways to be sure the website is legitimate.


1. Contact the website.
2. Check the address bar if it is verified by Google
3. Check Google SafeBrowse report.
4. Review and assess the content and pictures of the website.
5. Type the company's name into a major search engine, if it appears on the first page.
