QUESTION: When a person has an idea and has it notarized, and certified mailed to himself, what protective rights does that person have? I have some life changing inventions, but I cant afford the cost to get a patent.

ANSWER: It does help establish a date of invention and the inventor, but gives you no patent rights.
