Few months ago, an idea went over my head. After some thinking, I though I had first to do a search over the internet to see if my idea already existed. And it existed.
I found out that there is a company that is selling the product I had in mind. The product is sold behind a brand named
As you can see, it's a wall clock but instead of pointers, it uses words to show the time.
I did sooo much googleing and all I found out, was the company name and its copyright (the name, but not the design). My idea is not to copy literally the design, but create a clock with words.
However, I don't really know if the a design patent or maybe a copyrighted includes the idea of using words to show the time.
Is there any website where I can check this?
