I`ve been trying to do my own patent search on an idea that I have. I am not sure how to word the search, or how to find similar items in the archives.
I have done market research by searching the Internet and Super stores. I haven`t found anything like my idea, which really surprises me since it`s a simple idea and not very complicated. Is this enough research, how long should I continue?
I don`t have the funds for an attorney at this time and would like to do the ground work myself.
Thanks for any help you might be able to offer me,
