Dear all,  
Please can someone here help me. I have a great idea. It involves the use of someone elses patent but in a completely different way which has never been done before. (heres a bad bizarre example, I dont want to give too much away) eg : like using the patent of a crisp packet but filling it with a brand of food which has never used the crisp packet idea before.
How do I give my idea a patent? where do I go to get one? I live in Mauritius, not the easiest place to find out things, the UK proved just as difficult.
Please help.

Dear Elizabeth,
Getting an idea to make money is VERY difficult. Just getting a patent is easy but expensive and patents go country by country.
That is why the Reality Check® was conceived to help the creative to profit or move on. What is worse patents are national, thus must be registed country by country, even though there maybe treaties granting multinational priority.
Keep what you have secret or disclosed with protective confidentiality agreements. You start behind the eightball if the claims of another patent override your conception.
