On-Line Chat for Independent Inventors
Every couple of months the USPTO hosts an on-line chat, allowing independent inventors to ask questions regarding the patent process. The next chat: Thursday, February 28th, from 2 to 3 PM (EST).
From the USPTO website:
Senior officials of the United State Patent and Trademark Office will be available live on-line this Thursday, February 28th, from 2 to 3 PM (EST). They will be answering questions and offering tips for independent inventors. Instructions for taking part in the on-line chat will be posted on the home page of the USPTO web site at 10 AM (EST) this Thursday. Inventors can begin logging on for the chat at 1:30 PM.
The independent inventor on-line chat is part of the USPTO's continuing efforts to promote and protect America's independent inventors. This effort includes educating inventor-entrepreneurs about the risks of working with invention development companies.

Can anyone suggest a patent search service for a limited search? Also I have a dated and witnessed document describing my invention, should I get some type of document from the search company that they will not divulge my information?
