This website is devoted to listing patent dealing with polymeric materials
which includes a patentpedia about patents on specific subjects. Why?
1. Introduction: The Patent as an Information Resource
1. Introduction Top
Patents are a useful information resource.
Although these patents are a legal document giving the holder the right to
manufacture and produce the product for a limited time without competition,
the nature of the document makes is an information resouce inspite of their
legal status. For example, games are played to prevent the reader from
circuventing the patents and the lawyer-like language often obscures rather
than clearly explain anything. A patent requirement is that the
document describes the state of the art and how the invention advances the
art. Often this is very difficult reading but now and then, a great
description of a technology appears that is not other wise available
, even in Wikipedia.
In principle, the patent should describe in great detail how the invention
works or is put toegther. It is true, some are suspect.
On the other hand, the broad outline are probably iis usually valid and the
patent does provide a starting point. Any work, a a patent or
peer-review document, must always be tested by experiment and
testing. In my expeience in liability lawsuits, I am amazed how this
is neglected even in the most advanced and sophisicated companies and even
Best of all this information is free and relatively easy to get to and even
copy. Patents are not copyrighted. However, good scholarship
requires proper attribution.
This mission of this website is to make plastics related patent readily
available to readers. An Alerts service is available.
2. Ideas Top
The heart of the patent is an idea. Every patent is a solution
particular problem. Ideas are life blood of most technical people,
companies, and especially University Professors. Groups often
have brainstorming sessions where ideas, good, bad or even worse are reviewed. Sometime interesting ideas come out of nowhere, but I
think one of the best triggers of new ideas is the state-of-the-art.
Each patent represents a step forward and a launching pad for the
3. Applications Top
An interesting aspect of the Patent is applications.. Patent
Applications could be a powerful stimulant for new ideas. Most Topics
will have a Topic Applications section. The most interesting aspect of
these patents is not only the application but the operational details in
4. Patentpedia Development Top
Each Patent eventually will be listed in the Patentpedia by Topic. At
this time, this is far from complete and is under development. It is a
slow process but as it grows it will become more useful. Maro can
supply Patent Titles on past weeks on this site for a fee. Send an
email with a Topic for a quote.
5. Financial Top
Finances are a problem. Hardly anyone wants to pay for anything
espccially Internet Information. An Alerts
service is available for a fee. So far, there are not many
subscribers. Donations are an option but I am not a charity. All I can
do is suggest thsee who regularly visits this website, consider donations.
Select one of the Options under the Alerts Service or send me an emal for
another payment method. (RDC
