Concept for a patent not materialized
In 1992 I came up with a "new use" idea for on a existing product, only later to find out someone owned a patent on the Idea concept. After spending money for a patent search I found that this person had a patent that just showed a vauge rendition of the idea itself. To my knowledge no one has developed this product yet, and is not on market. My question is I want to see this product come to market. I know what it looks like, I know exactly how I visualize it being used, Is it possible to get this product designed. A prototype developed, with some intalectual property protection without infringing on the patent holders patent? I contacted the patent holder years ago. He told me that if I had any Ideas to get it going he would be willing to get it going. He realizd he couldn`t do it all on his own. I`ve since tried to get a hold of him, and I can`t track him down. Any suggestions?
