There's a large community of hobbyist and DIYselfers who are constantly working on new stuff. Assuming that one of them comes up with something new what are the avenues that he/she can profitably explore. What I did understand from the link that I referenced, is that it is impractical to fight out your Patent Wars all alone. Are there communities, which for a certain percentage in the returns, help a small-time individual in filing for a patent of his/her idea?
The first two communities that come to mind are:
- Universities (for those who have that option)
- Sites like InventHelp (link).
Are there other groups out there who will do a similar/better job?
