Patent Attorney

Investigating and proving USE of patented entities or processes fuels numerous service industries, e. g. for patent licensing or litigation. The patent proprietor MAY know, from experience and/or Investigation where the patent is used.
USEFULNESS appears to be a different issue.
Is it your interest to buy or licence the patent?
Contact a Patent Attorney whom you like and trust, before your "interest" becomes expensive.
