I was wondering, how is a patent linked to the owning people who reside outside US? It cannot be only assigned by name of course. There might be thousands of people by the same name.
Is it linked to, for instance, the passport ID of the person? Of course it can also change later by changing the passport, or maybe to national ID number of the person in their homeland? Which I don't think also.
I mean if I register a US patent, how can the law recognize me as the credible person among the other people with the same name as me?
