Patent infringement is the act of making, using, selling, or offering to sell a patented invention, or importing a product covered by a claim of a patent without the permission of the patent owner. A person “infringes” a patent by practicing each element of a patent claim with respect to one of these acts. Further, actively encouraging others to infringe patents, or supplying or importing components of a patented invention, and related acts can also give rise to liability in certain cases.

When patents are at the center of a business dispute, there are many options for resolving. Our success means accomplishing the best outcome with the most effective and efficient investment based on our clients’ goals. We have extensive trial experience from district courts to the Supreme Court; however, when litigation is not necessary or efficient, we also have an excellent track record of finding and employing alternative strategies, including reexams, licensing, post grant review, and ITC proceedings that more effectively accomplish our clients’ goals.
The success of a marketing campaign is no longer simply based upon developing brand awareness or exploiting an expensive, cutting-edge product or copyrighted work. Companies now seek to ride celebrity waves and exploit consumer use of social media, leading to more claims of infringement or unfair competition.
