bcnu provided a good answer.
I would go even further and say...read up a bit on it.
go to the USPTO site and dig up some info and
from around the web to get going.
I have gotten some great info from Nolo before.
They site is below as well.
They also have great books that you should be able to get at your local library
(of course you can buy them too, anywhere).
I have a real hunger for invention and inventors. So if you need any help I will be glad to assist you. Feel free to contact me.
Oh I just remembered, I read a great book a while ago about a guy inventing basically on his own. If I remember what it was and you are interested let me know. It was a good book.

You apply for a patent on the invention; the idea can only be protected if you keep it secret.
The costs for filing and pursuing a patent would depend upon what country, what the invention is, how much experience you have in patent prosecution administrative rules, and whether you're going to want protection in more than one country, among other things.

The answer is the $65 Provisional Application for Patent to get you Patent Pending from the USPTO..
While I have the EXACT answer for you but there are folks who read my answers that tell you EXACTLY how to do what you want and delete them. Mostly lawyers and the like who do not want you to save money by doing things yourself.
So go to the USPTO website and see if you can figure it out without any assistance like everyone else tells you to do. I PROMISE you the US Government can NOT make anything easy. Not even the 1040-EZ tax forms. You need help and you can find it on YouTube by searching for Provisional Patent Video and see what you find. Or, search the term "Provisional Patent Video" and see what you find.
Sorry for not putting links but when I do my answer will get deleted.
Sadly too is the interns who REVIEW deleted answers are numb to the point where they do not even read what the question was and the answer. As such YOU LOSE because you do not benefit from reading answers and making that decision yourself.
My answers tell you how to take advantage of the Provisional Application for Patent, PPA, and I also have a link to a free NDA that you can use and modify.
I have a Provisional Patent Video Course that you can review and some folks use the link to go directly to the USPTO's website and file on their own.
The USPTO charges you $65 to file a PPA that gives you "Patent Pending"
Is that cool or what! The answer to your dreams! So google "Provisional Patent Video" and you will find the answer!
PM me and I will give you EXACT details so you may benefit and decide for yourself..
