Intellectual Property Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer
Anyone know anything about patents? Trying to determine if small modifications (in this case two cuts from a dremel tool) to allow an item to be used in a completely different purpose would be able to be patented.
It doesn't matter, I don't think the thing is worth getting a patent on. Thanks!
And thanks for even trying with this. I know it's not a normal category. One thing I would love to see is bike repair. I work on my cars on a regular basis and I have been surprised at how complicated it is to work on bikes. I get stuck working on my bikes and I wish Justanswer had professionals to ask like you do for cars. I always thought bike repair was kind of a joke until I tried it. There are so many different makers of every component and they are done differently.
