I need some help Answered

while riding home from the golf course this morning i came up with a great idea,(no details) but i cant do anything with it because you have to be 18 or older to patent and i need a lawier and all kinds of stuff that i cannot possibly acheive. if anyone can help me please do. if i can publish it it'l sell awesome with the current "energy crisis" but as i said before, i cant do anything with itfor three more years and by then surely someone else will already have it patented. thank you for reading rocketkid

What exactly are you asking for? There's no question in the topic, do you want a collaboration or some general advice on protecting intellectual property? The word 'energy' fills me with doubt (considering other ideas I've seen this year...) - is your idea original, and proven (in your own experiance at least)? Or do you just have an idea that needs development, and is that where you're asking for help? L

All i really needed was pretty much what LasVegas posted.I just needed protection for it, but school is about to start and sports fill weekends and evenings, so someone to help with development would be great.

Well, you can try me for development (intellectual property rights considered. I've no interest in patents or actually making money out of anything like this) L

First and foremost, document you work. Have someone witness it to prove the date you created the device. You'll need to do a patent search to prove that no one's patented it or any portion of it before. You could submit the patent through a parent without much problem, but the process is very expensive. It's better to have a working prototype before that.
