WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

I’m a fucking genius!!
I’ve invented this thing, it’s fucking amazing! It’ll save some people a fuck load of time, I can make a prototype easily....

I need to patent it obviously, but after that how do I proceed?

I’m excited!

I’ll be honest, I don’t care what you think!

Re: I’m a fucking genius!!
It seems you CAN patent a pissed up idea!

I’ve searched and no one else seems to have thought of it (or are using it at least)
I’ve been in touch with a company and I’ve been sent a pdf with all the relevant information

Thanks for all the advice chaps

Ha no link, and btw she says emails are worthless the minimum you need is a filing date, don't disclose till then, first come first served.

Re: I’m a fucking genius!!
I've had a couple of patents in the past, processed through AA Thornton by a Mr John Lerwill. Great fella and very upfront and now somewhere near the top of the chain, probably.

But be warned, getting the patent is the easy part - and unless you have unlimited funds and money you will never be able to afford to protect it if your idea is very commercial and can be produced abroad.

(f anyone can guess why I have experience of the second paragraph, they can award themselves a chocolate star)

Re: I’m a fucking genius!!
Hi, Fraser's Mrs here. I've worked within the patents field for 17 years. Your best bet is to find a company interested in your invention and get them to buy it and possibly just name you as the inventor. The UK patent process is pretty lengthy and expensive and then you may want further countries. Unless you're idea is ground breaking and you think you'll make a fortune you'll spend a good 20k patenting it. If you do want a patent attorney.pm Fraser and I'll see if i can give you details of a friend in London.

Re: I’m a fucking genius!!
you cant patent a pissed up idea, fyi.

think of something; make it or get someone to make it; get someone to use it and pay for it , redesign it totally, then think about giving a lawyer money to protect your IPR

thank me later

Re: I’m a fucking genius!!

I did some work with the owner for IP and he is a really nice guy and they are a really nice company.

Just so you know as soon as you have emailed them the idea then it is yours to claim.

I have had some ideas before but a quick search shows that others have similar ideas. there are people that have the idea and don't do anything with it for either commercial or lazy reasons. then when you launch without checking they sue you as you have interfered with their IP.

So don't be scared of someone nicking the idea as you can then prove it was yours as it is dated.

HTH and good luck.

Take the Hegelian view - we're just the universe discovering itself by inventing things. In a few billion years it'll settle down to an eternity of doing nothing again.

Is it a device for catching fart fumes in the bath to light your cigarette?

If so I have already invented it.

Re: I’m a fucking genius!!
Boult wade tennant Holborn office filed UK, HK and EU patents for me, the later being unsuccessful. They will research and tell you whether there is any prior art and whether they believe your invention patent is unique and likely would be approved before application. You can search yourself to see at the uk ipo, euipo, uspto and wipo

WHOmail if you want the specific attorneys name or any info and I will dig it out.

Much info here, file for trademark yourself here https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/intellectual-property-office

*puts glass of water on small brass plate*

*gear wheels turn, model trains shoot off belching smoke, bells ring, cuckoo clocks chime, artificial worm drops out of cuckoo's beak, turntable is activated by bouncing worm, lever strikes button on TV*

I'm thinking of calling it a remote control device.
