    Our patent application was approved back on Aug 12. I didn't find out until today.

    It's patent number 7412463. Laws change on a daily basis, but law books are only published periodically, typically annually. If you are charged with a violation because of actions that occured on a particular date, your lawyer would be interested to know what the law was on that date along with knowing what other relevant laws were. We invented a way to database the laws so that that you can view the entire legal code as it would have appeared had it been published on that day.

    Wouldn't it be ironic if your patent were invalidated by a search your own database turned up? :biggrin:
