QUOTE (hoonsou @ 24 Mar 2008, 12:45) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Now, I know not much at all about this sort of thing but, shouldn't you patent this work you've done. It would be horrible to see you do loads of work, only to see some scrote come along, nick it and put their own patent on it. Just a thought.

I don't know much about this either either, but surely, once something is in the public dormain you cannot patent it ?

Or maybe, once the details have been worked out you can lodge a sealed copy with your solicitor (or somebody of equivelent standing) to protect yourself.

It's a great pity that someone generous enough to make his work freely available for the benefit of all has to possibly take these steps.
