Re: [newtech-1] question

Simply put, if you don't have or want to spend the money to file a patent ($5,000 is extremely cheap), then you likely don't have the money to defend or enforce it.

Our patent system has evolved to favor the corporation over the inventor.

Hi all,

I am planning to patent an idea. My attorney is asking for 1300 dollars to do the search to find out if something similar exist and to see if it makes sense to apply for patent. If there is nothing similar that exist, he would file for provisional patent (charging 1200 dollars excluding the registration fees) as I do not want to spend a lot of money on utility patent (for which he is asking about 5000 dollars). 

 I wanted to take an opinion on:

1. Does it make sense to do the search before filing for patent and spending 1300 for that search before filing for patent?
2. How much do lawyers charge for that search and also for both provisional and utility patent?
3. Is it a good idea to file for provisional patent over utility patent?

I will appreciate your help!!!
