Just thought I'd add that while working for an intellectual property division of a major U.S. University, we estimated that the COST of securing a property was about $10,000 per patent, including the fees mentioned above. This included fees to patent lawyers to create patents that were difficult to challenge, and usually two rounds with the patent office.
