Ask Patents is a question and answer site for people interested in improving and participating in the patent system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It is to my knowledge that all of the living members who created this invention and this patent died in the Malaysian flight. What happens to the patent now? Is it up for grabs again?

You don't say what patent document you are referring to. If it was done on behalf of a corporation there is a good chance the ownership is with the company, not the inventors. –  George White Apr 30 '14 at 0:20
