    An invention can be protected by a granted patent. So the first thing you have to do is covert your idea into an invetion that meets the criteria below. As for numbers patent registration may vary depending on wgere you live,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,u will have to do your own research on this..

    A granted patent provides the owner with the exclusive right to an invention within the marketplace. It is a government sanctioned monopoly provided to the owner to exploit the invention to the exclusion of others. This monopoly lasts for the term of the patent. This term varies with the type of patent sought (between 8 and 20 years).
