Understanding Patent Infringement
A patent is a form of intellectual property that grants the exclusive rights of an invention to an individual or organization for a specific period of time. Unfortunately, the special protections offered by patents are sometimes violated by a third party through what is called patent infringement. If you suspect that a third party has committed patent infringement on your patented invention, or if you are being accused of patent infringement, it is important to discuss your legal options with an experienced intellectual property attorney.
Litigation Over Patent Infringement
In the United States, patent infringement occurs when a third party takes any of the following actions with an invention without the permission of the patent holder:
- Makes the invention
- Uses the invention
- Sells the invention
- Offers to sell the invention
- Imports the invention
Patent owners have a right to protect themselves against individuals who commit patent infringement. Our attorneys offer assistance to both individuals who stand accused of patent infringement as well as patent holders who believe that their patent has been infringed upon.
