To Patent or Not?
I spoke with a contract manufacturer today regarding my formula. My intention was to start with a provisional patent and go from there. His thoughts were not to patent at all. He did say this was only his opinion but it was this. - That when you patent an over the counter drug it sends up red flags to the larger companies and they will and do replicate and sell your product. I understand that even with a patent that can still be done, you just have legal grounds to fight it. He thought it would be much better to try to saturate the market with the product while establishing brand identity to create a following of customers while remaining under the radar. Does anyone have any opinions on this?
