This question already has an answer here:

I would like to be able to patent the design for an apparatus I made, I don't care about royalties I just want to spread the idea in a citable way that can't be patented by someone else for profit. Is there an easier way to do this than a regular patent? I live in Europe.

I'd appreciate any advice, thanks!
