How inventors go from patent to licensing agreement

Filing a patent in America is easier and less expensive than it is in most other countries. However, it is neither easy nor cheap. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has several guidelines in place that inventors must follow or their claims will be rejected time and time again. One of the major criteria patents must satisfy is novelty. An idea must be new to be accepted. Commercial use of the idea, public disclosures and even articles may undermine the ability to patent an idea.

Addressing patent infringement involving chemicals

The rights of business owners are violated in all sorts of ways, and infringement is a serious problem. Unfortunately, infringement takes on many forms and can impact companies across a variety of industries. When people think of infringement, they may envision motion pictures, trademark issues or computer code. However, it is essential to realize some of the other ways in which infringement occurs. For example, infringement may involve chemicals, such as the misuse of an innovative chemical product. If your business is struggling with patent infringement, it is crucial to look into potential legal solutions as soon as possible.

Recent data may give insight into corporate filing strategies.
