About.com's Wacky Patents Links page - including a link back to here.

Gallery of Obscure Patents - on the Delphion (formerly IBM) Patent Server.

Patently Absurd - A British site, with weird and wonderful patents from "across the pond".

Patent o'the Week - Still more weird patents, including some which are, shall we say, X-rated. 

Totally Absurd (tm) - "a hilarious look at goofy inventions"


Want copies of any of these patents? You can download images of them using the patent number from the USPTO website (you'll need a free TIFF viewer program). They're also available for $3.00 each from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Box 9, Washington, DC 20231. Or, fax an order to the Patent and Trademark Office at 703-305-8759 - include a credit card number, expiration date, and signed authorization to charge your credit card account.


Even if your idea isn't as novel or useful as these, you should keep its protection in mind. Brown and Michaels has helped many inventors to obtain patents, and we look forward to working with you.
