How can I find out if my invention is already patented? 3 Answers as of October 21, 2010Is there an easy way to find out if a device has already been patented. I came up with an idea for an invention but it might be similar to something that already exists. Where can I find out if my invention is original?

The best way to find out if there is a similar device is to have a patent search conducted. Our office performs patent searches of the USPTO database to determine whether there are prior art patents which would prevent our client from obtaining a patent. Please contact our office if you would like to retain us to perform a patent search for you.
