Huntsville, AL asked in Internet Law for Alabama

Q: Is it legal for a person to possess many identities and fake documents on-line for public to see of fake patents.

I mean this person has 20 plus identities and he is possessing things online or trying to show that he owns things by creating fake documents for anyone who wants to look at them

A: This does not seem to be a patent issue. When filing a patent application, one needs to submit the true list of inventors. From your description, I don't think that this person has patents that were issued with fake inventors.

I am not sure what type of scam is going on here but you may want to consult some other topic group within Justia in order to get a response.
