Q: Good morning, I would like to know if there is any chance to get contact information about a patent owner.
I have had an issue selling a product that it is supposed to be patented by "Mr. W.T."
Patent number: 7841848
Publication number: 20070034094
I would like to know if there is any chance to contact with the patent owner to negociate a possible solution for the issue I have had.
Looking forward your response, thank you in advance.
A: To obtain contact information for a patent owner, you can search the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) database for the patent in question. Once you find the patent, the contact information for the patent owner or their legal representative may be listed. Alternatively, you can consider consulting with a patent attorney who can assist you in identifying and contacting the patent owner to discuss your concerns and explore potential solutions.
You can find the patent here:
The face of the patent has the inventor's address, so you can correspond with them directly.
There is nothing to negotiate -- the patent is expired. The patent expired on 11/30/2018 due to non-payment of maintenance fee.
Feel free to use anything in the patent however you want.
