I am a former entrepreneur, an electrical engineer, and a now a patent agent located in Southern California. I am enthusiastically pro-patent, but also believe that only applications that truly meet the legal criteria for patentablity should get through the system.

comment How long after a patent gets a FINAL REJECTION does it appear as such on Google Patents?
I think Julie in Austin's comment is more than a nit, but this is a format nit - Her comment applies to the question but is posted under an answer that does not confuse applications and patents.

comment Sufficiency of disclosure for untested invention?
Someone who can't get a zig zag barrel to work has a wish, not an invention. The march of technology can we relevant. Optical mice, for example, work by looking in high resolution at the surface under them and comparing it to what the surface look like a few milliseconds earlier. Someone could have thought of that in 1985 and showed how it could work if the mouse just had a sensor and the computing was done by a a Cray connected by a cable. That's enabled. But if the claims said, "with a computing device that fits in the hand-sized mouse", then I would say it would not be enabled in 1985.

comment Can I modify and resell patented product?
After you buy something you are free of the patents the manufactures has on that thing. Whereever you get the parts, the new thing you make may or may not infringe other patents from that manufacuture or some third party.

comment PCT and Prior Art
The last paragraph is incorrect. Other than the U.S., most location require absolute novelty. The day after you disclouse it is too late to file in Europe, China, Japan and almost everywhere else in the world.

comment Chaining unrelated inventions
Doing something extremely unusual that is untested in the courts in order to achieve a small cost savings is not very safe.
