comment Is this check-splitting patent valid?
Yorick, do you have any advice on how to go about applying for a patent? You seem to know a lot, and I don't know if you are a lawyer or not, but some links or literature that you can point me to would be greatly appreciated. Just about to start reading Patent It Yourself. Thank you in advance.

Does this mean, if this patent is granted, and we had the same mechanisim in place, that the comment on the original post, can waive such rights as attorney-client privilage and be used against us?

Did I divulge something I shouldn't have? Just trying to understand. I come from engineering background but not a lawyer and any help would be greatly appreciated. And yes, lawyers do cost a lot, so I understand the monetary reference. :)

Yorick, thank you for answering. I don't quite understand what you mean by... "Well, you might want to be mindful that what your attorney tells you is privileged so long as both of you protect that privilege. Lots of time and money is sometimes spent defending against demands to divulge opinion of counsel." I understand the privileged part but the second sentence eludes me. Not a lawyer by the way. Also, for the fact that they advised not to file, and they make money by filing, shows great character on their behalf. They could have taken my money and filed with an unsatisfactory outcome.
