I see many patents awarded for a same concept products - how is this possible?
What are the laws governing similar patents?
I ask this question because I have an invention, and I see on google patent that a similar idea has been already patented, but in what circumstances, would I be able to patent mine?
How about if the method is different in achieving the similar goal? Would that do it?
Please enlighten a newby to this.
Thank you in advance...
