Greetings GZ wisdom warriors,

I'm approaching final 3D printed prototype of an idea that hasn't yet been patented/protected.

I was thinking of posting up a YouTube clip of the technology in action (without revealing how it actually achieves what it does) for general feedback/exposure.

Question: Would this affect my ability to protect the idea at a later stage (if I choose to patent it)?

Cheers.

Update:

I had a chat with Mike and am now aware of the reasons why NOT to place anything on YouTube before filing a patent application. The information given was tremendously helpful...once again thanks to GZ for helping me make the right decision.

I highly recommend Mike to the GZ community for any IP work. Cheers.

Gerald
