4. Patents are worthless, unless you have the means to defend them.
I found that out the hard way. I spent a lot of Money for nothing.

All it does, is give you an edge in Court. To top it off, one has to file the same patent in other countries as well, otherwise you have no protection in that Country. Look at Apple and Samsung as an example.

I prefer Trade Secrets. Keeping my own counsel has served me very well.
