This page comprises an extensive and arbitrarily arranged list of sites dealing
with intellectual property and particularly with patents and patenting. If
you know of any patent, trademark or intellectual property site missing,
please don't hesitate to contact me. I try my best to keep the patent FAQ-list
updated, but things change rapidly in cyberspace.
By the way: I have been thinking of rating the patent sites regarding their
user-friendliness and information content. Any comments to that end is very
welcome. If you want to review a patent site for me please drop me at the
maximum 5 lines on the site, which I will place by the patent site address
along with your name and the date of review. I reserve the right to change
the review at any time.
