    honest question about patents

    i have read this here internet site for a LONG time, and i think the reason my business and what not does so well is that Mike and company just "get it".

    but now i find myself on the other side of things. i have come up with something that:
    - has not been done before, not QUITE this way
    - it is unique enough that it deserves a patent under the current broke system
    - it will be worth a lot. A LOT

    some extra info:
    - it is a physical object, let's say "tactical" in nature, for want of a better word.
    - looking for funding, from either a gubment grant or private loan, though i hate to give up ownership for a little now that costs me a LOT later

    i TOTALLY agree with the WASTE that software patents are(and i have written software, myself, taht helps feed my family).

    but, seriously, how do i do this against, say, Raytheon or haliburton or some company with BILLIONS and lawyers that cost BILLIONS and win? seriously? how?

    held off, now i might just jump in

    i have folded for a long time, and a few months back , took a quick look at bitcoin just for something to do. i was TOTALLY not reading up a little about darknet/i2p and all that. for science.

    it looked good, and, from a consumer standpoint, i honestly was intrigued. the idea that i could pay, ANONYMOUSLY, was super-duper-awesome. via riaa/mpaa/fbi/nsa/timewarner and all that "watching" me.

    now that things have settled? yeah, i think this morning i'll go to the site, get the client running on my two 5770's, and see "wahtz up".

    Um, that article you linked to is about a study funded by NBC Universal. Do you really think it is not biased?
