As we all have been talking about copywrites, trademarks, and patents and poorman's copywrite. Does having a notary on games help any to protect you and your game idea?

Good question...I can imagine some situations in which you may need to have your signature on a contract notarizered, but in general, the primary functions of a notary don't apply to artistic design.

If for some reason you need the services of a notary, I have had luck finiding them at town halls, banks, libraries and at an attorney's office; in all cases the notary was willing to help on short notice, but I would always call ahead first :)

Here is the definition of Notary Public according to national Notary Association

“A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government—typically by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents. These official acts are called notarizations or notarial acts. Notaries are publicly commissioned as “ministerial” officials, meaning that they are expected to follow written rules without the exercise of significant personal discretion, as would be the case with a “judicial” official.”

So in short the only thing a notarization can do for you is verify a signature as true.

I have used in combination by using the poorman's copywrite and notary back in the mid 90's for some drawings.
