Patent Infringement

Patent infringement occurs every day!
Owning a patent gives you the right to “exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling” your patented invention. Patent infringement occurs in every industry and sector of the economy, and the job of fighting patent infringement falls on the shoulders of the patent holder. All the Patent Office does is issue patents. They do not pursue or investigate claims of patent infringement even when they are brought to their attention!

Patent infringement is the unauthorized use of your property!
When a person or business uses your patent, they trespass on your property – your intellectual property. They take from you the revenue your patent produces for them, and would have produced for you. Under law, you have the right to pursue a civil remedy against a perpetrator of patent infringement, but a patent infringement lawsuit is often a David-versus-Goliath struggle. The patent infringement plaintiff is often an individual or a small business, while the patent infringement defendant is a large, well-financed corporation!

While copyright infringement may constitute a criminal offense in the US, patent infringement can only be prosecuted as a civil matter. This technicality aside, patent infringement robs you of your intellectual property and its well-deserved rewards. When somebody else profits from your ingenuity, your IP rights are violated.

Unfortunately, this crime is not one that your state or the Federal Government can you help you stop. Patent rights do not come with a police protection. The inventor is left to his or her own devices. Since the cost of patent litigation can run into the millions of dollars, most inventors are not in a position to enforce their IP rights. Infringers know this only too well and think they can continue to infringe with impunity.

You need a patent infringement champion with deep pockets
That’s why individuals, small businesses, and other patent owners come to General Patent when they are the victims of patent infringement. General Patent’s patent attorneys examine your patent infringement claim, and if we confirm your suspicion of infringement, we may offer to partner with you in pursuing a remedy for the infringement of your intellectual property.

As a result of the patent enforcement campaign we undertake on your behalf, we may be able to negotiate patent license agreements that produce payment of royalties for the use of your patent. If the infringer refuses to license your patent, we will bring a patent infringement lawsuit.

General Patent truly is your champion because we underwrite any and all expenses involved in patent infringement litigation, including research, expert witnesses, court reporters, document production and discovery, video depositions, trial demonstratives, and all other litigation expenses and disbursements.
