  • Answering this would fill a book and then some. If you have a specific question about the process, feel free to come back here to ask, but asking simply "how to patent" is too broad for this site. – Robert Cartaino Oct 31 '15 at 14:58
  • It might help if you could differentiate between whether you are seeking to protect he 'look' of something (a design patent) or a tangible mechanism/process (utility patent). Then, if you could give a few broad details it might help people at least point you in the right direction to get started. – SRDC Nov 3 '15 at 4:20
