Hi guys. I was all worked up about a grea idea that I have. No one else is currently capturing this market, but I fear that they will soon. I contacted a patent attorney and i`m going to meet with him soon. But I did my own research and found several patents that are similar to my idea. In effect doing the same things. I`m not looking for concrete direction, but what might be a good step now?
Is it possible to try and license one of these patents? Would you guys still go ahead and try to patent your idea ayway? I noticed that the patens have been dormant for almost eight years. There is amarket out there, but this invention has not been successfully brought to market.
Again I`m just looking for your thoughts.
