    Has anyone been through the patent process...?
    Patent applied for...? Patent Pending...? Patent received...?

    Has anyone preserved intellectual property (IP) rights with a trademark...? A formal copyright...?

    Any thoughts, ideas, recommendations...?

    I don't have any knowledge about this. I have a friend who has a lot of patents. You might find some useful information on his blog http://www.askingwhynot.com/

    General thoughts on the question "I have an invention and I want a patent ... what do I do?" may get you started. Good luck

    Yes - all through work. Some international. Not sure what your question is. With all the time and the challenges, I would recommend a lawyer.

    My nephew, an engineer, filed a bunch of patents when he was young. You can just file. But it is good to do a search for similar inventions. i looked at the process when I was involved in a dot.com and you can make slight modifications and then file a separate patent. It can be somewhat simple to go around an invention that way.

    I've been awarded a few dozen patents in the US, many more if I include the corresponding PCT patents. They were defensible and successfully commercialized. The most important recommendation I can make is to find a law practice that specializes in intellectual property and has extensive experience in the subject matter of your idea or invention. I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you might have.
