  • It is my understanding that if a product or an idea is published in print and is in the public domain, that someone cannot get a patent issued on that idea. They can try to get a patent on some major “non-obvious” improvement on that device or idea but they cannot get a patent on what you already have in the market place.
    I am not a patent expert but this is my understanding.

No public wish lists :(
