Questions regarding submission rights?
1. Does submission implies public disclosure which qualifies the solution as public domain and prevents me from ever applying a patent?
2. My solution requires a process patent which is costly to engage an attorney to file a proper application so I have not filed for a patent yet. Given it is a process patent, does this mean FTC can give the solution to anyone in the world without me getting any compensation even if I have obtained a patent for it afterward?
3. What if someone files a patent on my idea from looking it up in the submission gallery? I cannot put patent pending on my proposal unless the application is already accepted by.
