I`m a new member and signed up to get some help on a easy question. I have a product idea that I have run a patent search on and found a patent that is exactly what I had in mind. The patent was issued in 2001 and lists the Author and his city and state, but no other contact information.
I`m interested in contacting this person, because I think his patent is a great idea and I don`t see any products on the market that use this idea. I have done product searches and contacted companies that service this market and there`s no indication that this product has been developed.
How do I find a mailing address for the author of a patent?
Thanks for your help,
