New Idea On An Existing Product

Postby Westin » Thu Jun 09, 2016 3:03 pm

I have an idea to change a popular existing digital product to alter a feature on it to offer another option to make it more versatile to a bigger population & use.

My question:  Can I expand on the already existing patent of the product to add this new change?  Who would I contact to intiate this prodjet?  How do I begin?

Thank you for your time.

Hi Barbara;

Yes, you can expand on the patent, however you have to get the patent holder's permission.  It's called using a patent as 'prior art.'  Talk to a patent attorney about this.  This is the best asvice I can give you.  Good luck Barbara!

Warmly;
