If you don't take steps to protect your intellectual property, you won't be
the first person to lose it to a large company with deep pockets (one who
might, by the way, not have the least interest in producing products which
incorporate it). The USPTO is notoriously bad at discovering/considering
prior art. This is not a battle you want to fight after someone else has a
patent.
