I have an idea for an invention that I would like to try and file for a patent. But I don't know how to do it. I did a search against the Patent Database Search on the keywords that I could think of and nothing came back, so maybe my idea is worthwhile. I'd like to hire a patent attorney to help me but I don't know how to go about doing that. Or even if there was a step-by-step online site that could walk me through the process that would be good. Any help?
I refined my patent database search and I found one similar idea already patented. Now I don't know if I should bother proceeding with the patent filing or not.
