What is a poor man's patent?

The idea behind a ‘Poor Man’s Patent’ is drafting a document that outlines your invention, sealing it in an envelope, and then mailing it to yourself. If you manage to keep the envelope sealed, then on the basis of your postmark you can show the date of the invention since it came in your possession or a date of conception of the invention or idea.
