I run a small business that designs algorithms and systems for dealing with geospatial data and then implements these with open-source software. These activities are not part of the core business. I want to defensively publish articles describing some of these ideas and implementations that could be subject to patent, so they are protected in perpetuity for the open source community. Is there any update to this post: How to make an invention un-patentable easily?
I'm looking for a way to defensively publish without shelling out 300 or 400 bucks for a commercial service. If I can't find something existing, I'll consider rolling my own journal that could be used by myself and other open source fans in the geospatial professions.
I'm not an IP or patent expert, so I appreciate any advice or suggestions.
