How can I confirm the date and patent of an invention,and who the inventor is? Please Respond as soon as you can. Thank You , Robert W. Spain

I am not sure what your question is. If you know the number of a patent, you can pull it up on the Patent Office website here. This will tell you the date it was issued and the inventor(s). If you do not know the number of the patent, you can search for patents (or published applications) here or at the public search facility at the United States Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia.

Let me know if you need further help.

I have applied for a copyright of a design on dice. I see on the web there are thousands of designs existing. I called a man who designs and makes dice. He says he has a Design Patent on his designs. Will a copyright protect me?
thanks for your time,
Joe Hall

I cannot give legal advice to non-clients. You will probably find out soon whether the Copyright Office considers your dice design functional and therefore non-registrable. As explained in this post, copyrights and design patents offer different scopes of protection. If both are available, which is best for you depends on what you need and how much you are willing to spend.
