Some even ask whether they should first obtain a patent before they submit the invention to a licensing company like Lambert & Lambert, for example. This is an age-old question invention question, which is really the patent/invention equivalent of the chicken or the egg.

"Moving forward with a patent doesn't make a lot of sense if the invention is not likely to be marketable, but moving forward with marketing and commercialization doesn't make a lot of sense (at least in some cases) if the invention isn't likely to be protectable with a patent." more
