    I've been searching for patents in the EU, US and China. Nothing has come up but I have seen a small Chinese site selling something similar, any advice on how to patent it? In the EU first, I know the price can vary hugely, how can I keep this minimal?

    Hey there, as with most technical questions like this, you will probably first want to figure out whether it is you need a copyright or patent, as both are entirely different animals. I own a few copyrights myself and the process was extremely simple. Of course this depends on the type of content that you are looking to copyright. As far as patents go, those are much more complicated and tricky and depending on how you go about doing that, your patent could end up providing little or no protection at all if someone is able to make a small modification to your original patent. I would definitely go with an expert on this that has a proven track record, IMHO
