On March 16, 2013 the American Invents Act changed the US patent system from a "first to invent system" to a "first to file system". This means that the first person to file a patent application gets the patent. As such, inventors who delay filing a patent application run the risk of having another person obtain a patent on an invention which they invented first. The best way to prevent this from happening is to FILE A PATENT APPLICATION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, and before the invention is exposed to others.
