Patenting is the BEST legal method available for protecting your inventive concepts ("inventions").
(a) Utility Patents
(b) Design Patents
Patent attorneys gain many years of training and experience in preparing very technical patent applications (including very detailed specification descriptions and claims) to be evaluated on their merits by the Examiners at the USPTO and various patent offices.
If you are a startup or a small company, developing a patent portfolio to cover your valuable products will help protect your monopoly by precluding others from copying ("misappropriating") your product concepts.
The "Patent Pending" status also helps in winning the confidence of investor prospects and future customers/clients.
It makes good business practice to prepare "a provisional patent application" before disclosing your product concepts to the public.
