In regard to your question about IP law, in the US (EU et al may differ), you have one year from the time you first publicly demonstrate, describe, or disclose your invention to file your regular patent application and still retain your intellectual property rights.

Although it won't extend the time you have to file your full application, it might be beneficial to send in a provisional patent application asap. The provisional application need not follow any formal structure. A printout of the email and a crude drawing would suffice.

Doing so would allow you to legally claim your device as patent-pending and give you the right to go after infringers during this first year.
