Patent Your Invention Ideas

Protecting your invention ideas doesn’t have to be costly.

It does need to be done correctly to stop others from copying your idea and help get a licensing agreement. One of the most important tools for licensing your ideas is a provisional patent application.


Our program will help you file a provisional patent application that you can use to:

  • Negotiate a win-win licensing deal.
  • Raise money from investors.
  • Stop others from copying you.

The majority of our members license their invention ideas with only a Provisional Patent Application that is written the “right” way.

“Every one of my videos has a link in the description to One Simple Idea, which is foundational reading for anyone who wants to learn how to successfully license their ideas and inventions. Stephen Key is one of the few folks in the inventing and entrepreneurial space that’s not trying to scam folks or peddle get-rich-quick schemes.”

“Stephen Key is my hero when it comes to making sole inventors successful. I highly recommend his books, especially when you are a patent attorney: it is always helpful to know with whom we work, and sole inventors are a sometimes awkward species.”
