If you have an invention idea and don't quite know how to submit your idea or get it patented or have any other questions, I encourage you to visit the National Inventor Fraud Center. It has all the information you will need to get your invention rolling into production and hopefully make some money. This site has information like, The first steps to take, how to license your patent, and a lot more information to help. It even offers help and information on what to look out for with fraudulent companies and scam prevention. So if you are looking to put that idea to work this site is a great place to start.
I think that this site has some definite merit, but it does not really have any information ther you can't get from many different sources. The idea here is good though. There are some very good tips here to help you get an idea to a patent office, or even to fight for your rights if someone has stolen an idea of yours. The information is useful if you are thinking about trying to patent something.
This site is very easy to use and to navigate. There may be a little too much text to absorb, but the section headings get you to where you want to go quickly.

This is an excellent place to learn about the patenting process, from the development of an idea, through applying for a patent, to marketing your patent or product. PENNSYLVANIA RESIDENTS ARE EXCLUDED FROM VISITING THIS SITE. The first thing you encounter is a notice that you must read the Terms of Service before viewing the site. Residents of Pennsylvania (and certain other commercial concerns) are prohibited from viewing or using this site in any way, under threat of a $25,000 fine. I do not know if this is enforceable, but since it does not affect me, I forged on.
I looked at most, but not all, the material. I found the section on patent protection to be especially informative. Hundreds of useful links to other sites related to all phases of the invention process are listed in a section labeled "Good Guys."
Navigation on this site is especially easy, as each selected section contains embedded hyperlinks and an outline of the entire site along the left margin with the current section expanded to include each of the links which appear in the text.
