I have a limited budget and I am looking form a startup based on my idea. My idea is related to mobile (Android, iOS, etc) apps and a supporting website. It is a broad idea which can be implemented as several different features of my product. Do I have to file for separate provisional patents or can it all be described in just 1 application?
Example - Lets say Mark zuckerberg (Facebook) has the idea of "people communicating with other people in their networks online" . Can he file a single patent which describes 1) Posting on wall 2) Sending private message 3) Voice call 4) Video call 5) Chat
This is probably a bad example but I hope I got my point across. Thanks in advance!
