PATENTS & TRADE MARK PROTECTION SERVICES
PROTECTMYIDEA.COM.AU WAS CONCEIVED WITH THE AIM TO ASSIST INDIVIDUALS AND COMPANIES ACHIEVE IP PROTECTION FOR THEIR INNOVATIVE IDEAS IN A MANNER THAT FITS THEIR COMMERCIALISATION PLANS AND BUDGET. WE DO SO BY PROVIDING CLEAR TRUSTED PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AT AN AFFORDABLE LOWER FIXED COST.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
You will receive the same professional service similar to that from a big firm, at a lower fixed cost, with no surprises.
You will be served by a trusted and experienced registered patent and trade marks attorney. You will be given advice for maximising your IP protection that fits your commercialisation plans and your budget.
Using modern technology, we have dramatically reduced the traditional overhead costs of a patent and trade marks attorney firm. This means less cost to you.
Tackling IP Protection Costs
Our experience with individual inventors, small to medium enterprises (SMEs) as well as large companies has taught us that tackling IP protection costs and keeping IP protection costs at a sustainable level is essential to their business.
Most clients can afford to take the initial application steps, but many simply cannot justify continuing the application process later down the track due to increasing costs and seemingly endless number of arriving invoices.
ProtecyMyIdea.com.au tackles IP protection costs in 3 ways:
1. Lower Costs: Our overhead costs are lower and we are able to pass on these savings to you. Not only are our initial application costs lower, you should also compare our lower ongoing costs for the further steps in the application process, such as filing of a PCT application or overseas patent or trade mark applications.
2. Fixed Costs: Our charge for each part of the application process is fixed. You will know exactly what our charge is and what the official fee is for each step.
3. Cost Certainty: You will be given an outline of your costs from start to finish. You will know what the charge is for each step of your application and when the charges will be due, providing you with cost certainty and no surprise charges.
NOTES ON COSTS
There is one step in the application process where costs may vary – responding to an examination report which depends on the objections raised. For this step, we will give you a range of possible costs, and a guarantee that the cost will not exceed the maximum cost provided.
Costs we do not have control over:
(a) Official Patent Office fees – however, these do not increase frequently; and
(b) Deviations from the Normal Application Process – such as when your application is challenged in an opposition. In these cases, we will also provide you with an outline of your fixed costs from start to finish for these separate processes.
We asked Protect My Idea to take on 2 different briefs for our business – one to stop a competitor passing off our images, and the other to lodge a patent.
In the past, using other legal advice in the passing off problem, has been frustrating, expensive and useless. Fidel wrote one excellent letter to this competitor and our images were off their site within 24 hours!
In applying for the patent, the process was so easy. I expected to have to spend hours explaining, and further hours providing him with all kinds of documents. Fidel fully understood our manufacturing process and created a brilliant application.
Both of these briefs were completed in 2 weeks.
I am so pleased to have found Protect My Idea. I happily recommend Fidel to others, and use his services again.

I came across Mr Fidel Dela Paz of Protectmyidea while doing a google search on IP firms. My first impression of his website was that I have found a patent attorney of integrity and honesty. Here was someone that I felt I could trust and from the first phone call any doubt was quickly removed. In our initial conversation we discussed the different options of protection available to us which were a design registration, innovation or standard patent.
Fidel was very patient in explaining the benefits of each of those options and finally reassured us that the product that would offer most protection was the standard patent so we decided to proceed with filing a provisional application. Fidel submitted a flow chart of costs associated with filing the patent which is another example of his professionalism and integrity so that we knew exactly what we were up for and when.
Fidel was always contactable by phone and responded very quickly to any email requests. I have found Fidel to be eager and enthusiastic in assisting us in realising our goal. I highly recommend Fidel of Protect My Idea for anyone seeking Intellectual Property rights protection”

I found Fidel via Google. I rang and he answered the phone himself and was immediately available for a discussion. Within a few minutes I felt he was the person I would like to entrust with my patent application.
I could sense he was as professional as any IP lawyer at a top firm but that I didn’t have to pay for vast overheads. The process has been quick and Fidel has never not been available by phone or not returned an email promptly.
At 11.45 pm on a Sunday evening he sent me a document he had been working on for the previous few hours. The overall fee was a fraction of what I had anticipated but the quality as good as I had hoped for from a top firm.
Fidel has been of tremendous help, right from the start. I left a message on my first call and within no time he was returning my call and answering all of my questions.
We knew immediately to not waste time trying a large company who would pass us from person to person and signed up with Fidel.
We are now patent pending after an easy and well explained process and have no hesitation in recommending Fidel to anyone.

I have already recommended “Protect my Idea” to a friend who was inquiring about IP protection for his idea.
I was impressed with Fidel’s ability to grasp an effective understanding of our invention and to ensure that our Intellectual Property rights were effectively protected by ensuring the scope of the patent application addressed all possible contingencies.
I would have no hesitation in recommending “Protect my Idea” to anyone seeking efficient, effective and professional assistance to protect their Intellectual Property rights.

I contacted Fidel Dela Paz through the Protectmyidea website with regards to trademarks and a patent for a new internet concept. I found Fidel to be professional and very clear in explaining to me costs and processes.
After deciding to proceed with the patent, i found the process to be easy and the patent was filed quickly, within the timeframes discussed.
Fidel’s work exceeded my expectation with the level of content and complexity the patent included. He covered every angle and i am confident that my concept is well protected. I now plan to proceed with issuing my company trademarks through Protectmyidea.

If you are seeking assistance with patenting your ideas or just need some help with your IP needs, I don’t believe you could find a more dedicated individual than Fidel at Protectmyidea.com.au.
For me, I was facing a very time-sensitive deadline in which Fidel understood and took the time to make sure my idea was protected through his hard work and dedication (and working late in the night to finish ahead of the deadline).
I truly cannot say enough for his Herculean efforts.
Thank you Fidel for your help in making this happen and please feel free to use me as a reference in regards to the dedication to your clients as well as your ability to generate superior service with incredible value for money.
Gladys McKenzie DirectorGLADMAC company
I saw your ad and rang you, I was going on the sound of your voice and your clarity in explaining what to do and how it works. So I made up my mind to use your company PROTECTMYIDEA. I was surprised at how quick and to the point the information given to me about my idea. The courtesy was top notch and he is very helpful and articulate.
The details in every aspect he can think of. He covered all bases and he has patience in listening to your needs. If you are new in the business, he is as good man to deal with because of his quick thinking and knowledge. If you lack any knowledge of how to protect your idea, call him, he will guide you and also work with you with great patience. Fidel thank you so much for your help and your honesty.
Thank you I will use your company PROTECT MY IDEA again.
After much research on the internet, it became apparent that the innovation patent I filed myself was possibly not the right patent. As I live in the country, my research is pretty much on the internet and phone. Luckily, I found Fidel’s business protectmyidea. I phoned Fidel, and after speaking with him personally, I decided after a couple more days’ research and comparison, that I trusted and respected his knowledge enough to divulge my invention.
We then discovered the innovation patent I filed had been approved and will be published that very day so we had 6 hours to file a new provisional patent application. Fidel was unfazed, he worked till just before midnight to finish my provisional patent to ensure it was filed on the same day as the innovation patent was published. A very close call, and only possible because of Fidel.
As I said I live in the country and have two children and a farm with animals to look after, and a part time job, the reality of me driving 3 hours to the city to see a patent attorney is a major movement order that would have taken weeks to organise. I love that after my initial phone contact we spoke a couple of times on Skype and confirmed all phone/ skype contact with emails. Kudos to Fidel for his own innovative thinking, and I applaud him for not sitting in the traffic for 3 hours a day, instead spending that time with his family.
And did I mention the cost, brilliant, I will be back.

Fidel has been very patient every step of the way through the patenting process. it was hard finding a balance between work and studying and Fidel was very tolerant. I rang Fidel up after discovering protectmyidea.com.au , he was available for a discussion immediately. Fidel was available for a discussion whenever I called.
The patenting process was made clear and several drafts was issued. The price was shown from start to end there were no surprises in fees. I high recommend Fidel as your patenting solicitor and would definitely recommend it to others.”
Huy Bac Lim
After completing two provisional patents, I have been very impressed by what Fidel has completed from just a brief meeting, a few emails and a handful of drawings. More than a patent attorney, I regard Fidel as being my personal advisor and value his opinion – an expert in his chosen field.”
Artem and Victor Directorwww.saunaonwheels.com.au
We were very happy to find Protectmyidea. We would certainly recommend Fidel and his service as we have found him very reliable, competent specialist in the area of patent applications. Our expectations were fulfilled with all the content and the complexity of our application.
Orawan Limnalong Directorwww.themakeupsocial.com
Fidel has done a great job at patenting our idea and we couldn’t believe how quick and simple the whole process Fidel made for us. He is a very knowledgeable individual and is dedicated and hardworking as well. Easy to communicate with, thank you Fidel for being an absolute great help with our IP issues.
Jon Morton Directorwww.fierradynamics.com
I approached Fidel to help my company apply for our first patent. Filing a patent is not a simple task as I learned especially within the electronics field, but Fidel was always available to discuss the patent application and clear open communication was evident throughout the process of filing our patent with Fidel. We will be using Fidel again to complete future patents.
Marc Chris Operations Manager, Wine & Co
Fidel was very responsive and quick filing our logo, pricing provided was also very competitive, we definitely recommend him at this stage
Huw Morgan DirectorAustralian Sports Imports
We contacted Protectmyidea to get advice about our design idea. The company provided a very thorough consultative service and gave us the confidence we required to make our design application. They dealt with all the paperwork making the whole process very easy.
