Ill. gunman felt cheated over invention

You can read the full story by going to:

Ill. Gunman Felt Cheated Over Invention!

It's not a very pleasant story and it doesn't go into detail about why the guy felt cheated about his invention. I won't go into details as far as what his invention was but you can read the news article by clicking the link above.

The reason why I posted the link here is because inventors feel a real need to keep their inventions private until they find an investor or a grant for it. They worry about their idea being stolen and/or about being short changed as far as receiving ample compensation for their invention. The whole process of getting your invention made is not a simple one and it is better that you plan for it well in the beginning so that you know exactly what it is that you want to achieve with your invention - and that includes financially as well. Although people think that its a waste of time or they simply don't want to do it - one should make a business plan - even if its for an invention and not a business.

You should plan out exactly what it is you want to achieve with your invention, the basic specifics of your invention and it is very important that you read over any contract or agreement that has to do with your invention! Get your invention patented! If you can't afford to get it patented then I suggest that you find a way simply because once your invention is patented there is an official record of it and an official record of you being the one that invented it!
