Question: I have numerous great ideas that all only need the right person to hear them to get them going. I am in the idea stage on all but one and on the one I had patent pending but it expired. It hasn’t been a year yet since I first pitched it I just need help all around I guess. I want protection on all my ideas but cant afford it.

ANSWER: You might consider filing provisional applications on all of your ideas and then see which ones show promise before taking additional patenting steps. Also, you can try the patent marketing companies that you see on late night TV, but you should carefully check into them before paying money.
