Ah John Rizvi, the patent professor, if you have a new idea, and you haven't filed for a patent yet, and someone asks about the idea and if you start working on a prototype, you go around town picking up parts to make the product and people want to know what the parts are for shut your freaking mouth before you file for a patent. You talk to an investor and the investor has questions about the idea short your freakin mouth. I represented a client who shared his idea with an investor, the investor signed a nondisclosure agreement, and then looked at the idea and said he wasn't interested. He said the idea had zero potential. A year later, my clients product is all over store shelves and making millions of dollars for somebody else. My client knew that the investor leaked the idea but he didn't have any evidence. And I couldn't prove it in court. So if an investor even one that signs a nondisclosure agreement, asks you about your idea. So to listen, the investor already has the money once you give him your idea. He doesn't need you anymore. So shut your freakin mouth. What if your mom asks you about your idea? Shut your frickin mouth. Your mom's proud of you. She's gonna tell Aunt Sally and Aunt Sally is going to bring your idea to her Friday night bingo game. But what if you've already told your mom shut her freaking mouth? Yes, but never say freaking to mama bow in 2013. The law underwent the single biggest change with regards to patents. We went from a first to invent system to first to file whoever files the patent first wins. So if your idea is unprotected. Any questions? Sure. My team's kidding. If you have questions call me the patent professor.
