I'm currenlty trying to push my own invention.. however things are goinging slowly..
 
Right now I have contacted only 4 companies and have 1 NDA signed. I would really like to speed things up alittle.. by doing a public disclosure..
 
would a tech website the best way for it?

Be carefull.  Offering your invention for sale too early can bar you from a US patent.

well its protected by 2 Australian provisionals. One patent is the technology.  
 
The other patent is the business process and related technologies.
 
I've had someone recommend I also file a USA provisional as well for added protection. Since I am discussing with a United states Partner. But from my interpretation of the laws. I can file a full Australian patent then I can also consider filling an international patent for up to 30 months of internal protection in most countries except countries like Korea.
 
I'm going to seek a patent attorney later or sooner since I filled the provisional myself. But I dont want to waste 20 Grand on a useless idea.. At the moment the idea sounds quite plausible, finance is good..
 
I got a NDA which means some company is willing to take a risk by signing it.
 
I dont think I'll be able try and sell the product since it doesnt exist yet.

Provisional applications don't "protect" you or the idea.  They only hold a place for you to file for protection later.
 
The 30 months of protection from a PCT application are the same -- they don't protect you but only hold a place for subsequent protection if you file for that protection in due time (within the 30 months).  
 
Neither a provisional application nor a PCT application allows you to prevent anyone from doing anything.

Cool James, however you would agree, I hope, that both a U.S. Provisional Patent Application and a PCT application would provide a vehicle for licensing the invention.
