Question
George Hi, I have always wondered where you physically go to search for product patents  or can this be done on a government web site. I dont have enough money to pay domeone.  What information that you can share would be appropriated. Thank you Ken

Answer
You can go to the www.uspto.gov site, and get into the patents section, and go to "search patents" & do a key word search. Also, there used to be patent repositories at the major universities around the country. Also, many universities have a department for entrepreneurship & economic development that might be able to help you.

Best wishes, George H. Morgan
