Patent research question

gongli's Avatar

   I see many patents awarded for a same concept products - how is this possible?

What are the laws governing similar patents?

I ask this question because I have an invention, and I see on google patent that a similar idea has been already patented, but in what circumstances, would I be able to patent mine?

How about if the method is different in achieving the similar goal? Would that do it?

Please enlighten a newby to this.

Thank you in advance...
