Using patent #US2002002659


I have an idea that seems to fit well with the claims made in the patent US20020032659. I need to know how to use this patent. I have not been able to connect with anyone who knows about this patent and yet the claims made and description of the patent describe a very useful invention to simplify the process of developing new products. Can you give any kind of instructions on how to proceed and connect with the owner of this patent? thank you, jim

A business method patent for a Non Practicing Entity (the polite term)? While it t would be instructional to watch such businesses be enjoined in suit over the patent, Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) shows it's status as abandoned for failure to respond to an Office Action in 2005. It's not a granted patent. The Help Center Asking tells us your request is not on topic for this site.
