Hello Everyone !
 
Its been a while, and I'm not sure how diligent I've been finding an answer but I'd like to ask a question concerning technology or inventive conception.
 
Can anyone tell me what constitutes publicity and is it a form of protection for IP ?

O.K. Here's my story, . . .
 
After the Shooting Incident at V-Tech, and for sometime before this, (911), . .I have had an interest in Emergency Responce, etc.
 
I was talking with some Computer tech people via the internet and posted an inventive concept, it is viewable and remains on a forum post, . .basically providing the general concept and some details, for a system that provides a possible solution or improvement in E.R. communications.
 
Do I have rights as an inventor if in fact the process or technology is patentable ?

I think a persistent forum post, especially if "indexed" (i.e., one can find it fair easily -- especially if it shows up on Google), qualifies as a printed publication.
 
If you're hoping for rights outside the US (and Canada and Argentina), you're probably out of luck.  Even for the US (and Canada and Argentina), you have a chance for patent rights only if the forum post was made less than a year before your filing date.  If the post was made over a year ago, I can't think of a way that you can legitimately get patent rights.
 
Regards.

At this point since you have posted the idea both there and here you now have no protection over your idea...someone can do exactly what you proposed for profit and there's nothing you could do about it...
