If there was no legal way to protect a new idea then anyone can steal it. Could you imagine Microsoft marketing their protects without protecting them? Absurd.
If you plan on selling an idea to a manufacturer without patent protection first, then you’re on the wrong track. Most manufacturers will not entertain the purchasing of an idea unless you first have at least attained patent pending status. They will insist eventually that your invention is protected with a patent. Without patent protection they have no guarantee that you own the patent rights. There simply is no way a company will commit their resources if the product cannot be protected from counterfeiters.
