Patent infringement troubleshooter
Is someone using your patented ideas or are you being accused of infringing someone else's patents? The development of new products is highly competitive. There are companies which buy up multiple patents and who have made it their life mission to sue people who infringe them. There are also companies who are very proud of their patent and want no one to use it within developing other products. What do you need to do when you are being accused of infringing or someone else is infringing your patent?
When someone is using the idea described in your patent, you are the one who has to go to that company and have them pay a fee for using your development. If you are not sure whether they are actually using the principles from your idea try to first get a clear understanding of their product before you confront them about the infringement. In most cases it is a very good idea to ask for legal advice, for instance Novel T. To make sure that you get what is rightfully yours.
It is possible that you are developing or designing a product. After a while you get a letter from the patent attorney telling you that you are infringing a patent. They will probably ask for a lot of money. No matter what your situation is like, there is no need to panic. Some of the claims are never followed up upon. Other claims turn out to be wrongfully accused. Only a small part of the claims is actually right, when this is the case. Get in contact with a reputable attorney who can aid you in any legal disputes. Having a signed NDA does not immediately mean that your idea is safe. You are the one who needs to enforce the NDA.
In case either one of these situations is what you are in right now, contact Novel T.
