INVENTOR'S PLEA; BizBureau EXPERT HELP FORYOUR BUSINESS.
G White, by email Biz replies PRoTECTING your idea is a good first step but you don't really need an agent.
You can go through the patent application process yourself and this would be much more cost effective for you. It costs between pounds 230 to pounds 280 to apply for a patent. Go to www.ipo.gov.uk or call 0300 300 2000.
