Initial Steps for Documenting New Invention Ideas

Before you do anything else, write your name, address and telephone number in your new invention documentation log. Next, give your invention a name (a simple, brief title will do), then give an overall description of it. Describe how the concept would work, its uses and benefits.

Benefits are what problems your invention solves. The uses description will include who will use it and how they will achieve the benefits. How it works should include a description of the pieces, how they are assembled and what they do.
