Good site to research if a patent for your potential idea already exists?

Here you can post your opinions, ask questions and share information regarding GPI (Searching the EPO’s worldwide bibliographic, legal event and full-text data sets via the “Patent information services for experts” user interface).

Espacenet is a good place to start your research. Go to https://worldwide.espacenet.com/ and have a look at the introduction video. This service is free and it has a dedicated forum espacenet-107/
There are more advanced EPO services to perform prior art searches like Global Patent Index (GPI).
Best regards,
