: : How do I find out if certain hymns are copywrited and/or still in publication? I don't want the music, just the words, (i.e. the original poem).

Dear Simple Gifts,

In publication is a whole nother ball game. The rest can be done searching the records of the Copyright Office.

Dear ,

The Reality CheckK is the way to examine an invention to see what can
properly done with it. It is easy to get a patent. It is not easy to make
money, even with a patent. It is easy to spend a lot of money and get a
patent, only to discover that it is of NO value.

I am a lawyer, and also specially registered to practice before the Patent
and Trademark Office. The first thing you do is to keep your invention
secret. A disclosure to a patent lawyer such as myself is in confidence.
There is great danger in using or disclosing an invention before the first
patent application has been filed unless it is in confidence.
Confidentiality is a study in itself.

The cost of the Reality Check (sm) is $250. If you send a written disclosure
of what you have in mind, we can go over it over the phone or in the office
to get a clearer picture IF there is anything that can be done. Getting a
patent in itself may be an expensive mirage.

Send a written description of what you have in mind, with any necessary
drawings and a $250 retainer. The drawings don't have to be fancy, only
understandable. We then go over the disclosure on the phone or in the
office.

Even if I know that I can get a patent for you I may not even recommend a
patent search if it looks impossible to realize your needs. I answer all
questions and dont mind being challenged. If we do a patent search you get a
credit for the $250 against the search.

There is a scam industry that takes in over $100M a year getting inventors
to file patent applications. Only 1 in 10,000 make more money than they pay.
Even legitimate Patent Lawyers can say yes to you without lying and get a
patent for you that is of no value.
