File Your Patent Application First!
 
The most important thing an inventor or business seeking patent protection should know is this: do not offer to sell, sell or use in public your invention before first filing a patent application.  You should keep your invention secret, not place it on sale or in public use, and not disclose it to anyone other than your patent attorney until after your patent application is on file.
