message: Where would a person go to find out if some other person or company already has a patent on an invention? Is there a website or can a company help out with that?

It’s a common question, actually, so we thought we’d provide a couple of important links.

Of course, you can always go to www.uspto.gov. That’s our nation’s patent office–the official website–and all the information about patents is right there.

You could also try www.freepatentsonline.com, a website that tries to simplify patent searching.

Please let us know which works best for you or if you have other good resources you would recommend.
