As we have written about before, having a patent is an incredible right and legal protection that can be the pillar of a business or company. But having a patent also demands certain responsibility. You have to protect your patent and hold people accountable when they are infringing upon your patent.
Companies that have patents need to be in touch with their attorneys when their patent is being violated. If another company is doing so, they are breaking the law. But it isn’t always as simple as that. Each case is unique and every case is going to have details and intricacies that need to be investigated and thoroughly examined.
But companies also have to be prepared for the reverse: being sued for or accused of violating another companies patent. The claims may not have merit, but the allegations themselves are serious and you will need legal counsel during these times to ensure that your side of the case is properly constructed and told. Patent infringement litigation is a tricky area of law, one that can lead to severe complications for the companies involved.
