Teacher

Can any business idea before its execution be patented and if so then where can it be done ?

Eureka you mean: let the ideas from your brain be transfered to a physical world to be marketable and to be protected from copycat. Remember Alexander Fleming who discovered Penicillin. If you are really convienced of your ideas on your brain just visit a patent office if it can be marketable.

  I have an idea which i want to translate into a business...I plan to start a services company which will provide service to a certain sector..and it could be very easy for other's to copy since it is simple...
Can I protect this idea so that no one can start a similar business...?

Ideas can be patented if you first use the idea to create something new and then patent it and do business.

Ideas can be patented. Just expand the idea to about 20-30 pages or if possible more and register and upload online at:

http://copyright.gov

 

You'll get hardcopy of evertying after the office follows its routine procedure as per Berne Convention and US copyright laws. Don't bother about other countries except Germany.

 

Study the site, FAQ and everything there and pay the fee , you'll get a receipt. In case of difficulty get back to me.
