What's next after a provisional patent is filed
« on: April 08, 2017, 10:52:01 PM »
Now that I have a provisional patent in hand, what is the next step, how do I safely release it to the public for sale.

Thanks in advance for your answer.

That seems to be more of a business/strategy question so I can't really answer that and it would depend on your product and market plus your goals.

In general though you could label and market your new idea as "patent pending" once the provisional has been filed.
