Not every idea should become an invention, and not every inventor invents good or sellable products. Much money could of been saved, and many landfills cleared if the inventors had honestly answered this question:
Is your latest invention ready and good enough to patent?
Here is a quick patent checklist to find out:
1. Is it marketable?
2. Did you invent it?
3. Do you own it?
4. Is it useful?
5. Does it fit in one of the patent “classes”?
6. Is it new?
7. Is it something that is not obvious to other inventors?
