A: This is difficult to answer without additional information about your case. You can search for patents on the USPTO website by 'inventor', 'applicant', or 'assignee' to find out if you are listed as any of those things on the patents (, but this will not necessarily give you a conclusive answer regarding whether you currently own those patents. You should the discuss the specific details of your situation with a qualified patent attorney.

A: If you have been informed that you are the owner of several proprietary software patents, it is crucial to gather all relevant documentation and information related to these patents. This includes any registration certificates, correspondence, and any official communication regarding the patents. To fully understand the scope and rights associated with these patents, I recommend consulting with an intellectual property attorney who can review the relevant documentation and provide legal advice tailored to your specific situation. - James Arrasmith, Owner.
