Can I discuss with potential investors? Or before the patent is granted? Or does it have to be just pending?
Once it's pending then then you can absolutely should discuss with investors. So it's the filing date is what's critical. Once you get that patent on file, you're fully able to commercialize it. You can speak to prototype guys, you can speak to investors. You can even start producing and selling the product before it's granted and that's why you see all these products sold as patent pending.
