Patent Infringement

Your patent is one of your must valuable assets. When your patent is infringed by another party, you must consider initiating legal action to protect your asset. 

Under United States federal law, your patent may be infringed when a defendant has copied, duplicated, used, sold, offered to sell, or imported an infringing invention or its equivalent. If this occurs to you, then you may be entitled to damages including reasonable royalty fees, your lost profits and the recovery of your court costs and attorneys’ fees, as well as a court order requiring the defendant to cease and desist from infringing your patent
