Presumably, whoever bought them bought the patents as well. Can't we check with the patent office who the current owners of the relevent patents are?

Yeah, I thought about trying to do that as well. However, the patent office doesn't list who the CURRENT owners are, only who the inventors and assignees of the patents at the time of the issue of the patent.

In this case, they were combinations of Wayne, John, Fingerworks, Inc., and the University of Delaware.

But who knows who owns it now...?

Well, here's a thought, while the FingerWorks folks might be able to claim privacy, the University of Delaware is presumably a public institution and as such, subject to Freedom of Information laws.

Has anyone contacted them?
