PATENT - Laws and Patent Attorneys
The creator of an invention may be granted the exclusive right to prevent others from using their invention without their approval by obtaining a patent. Patent laws allow any person who has come up with a unique and marketable idea to register their invention for protection and ability to sue others who infringe on their rights. Patent attorneys are familiar with patent laws and will make sure the proper legal procedures are followed when assigning a legally enforceable patent.
A patent is essentially a property right in the use of an invented item. Patent laws create an avenue for enforcement by allowing a civil cause of action to a patent owner whose invention or research is misused, or used without permission. The owner of a patent should work with a patent law attorney to properly file a case and seek appropriate remedy such as an injunction preventing further use of the patented product and damages caused.
Patent attorneys exist to help create, maintain, and enforce patents as established by patent laws. Patent law firms offer clients a variety of services from helping a potential patent owner research similar products to make sure their patent is unique, obtain a patent for a unique item, expand on an existing patented item, or sue another party for improper use of patented item. Experienced patent attorneys are able to provide clients the necessary support to establish and protect a patent so they may profit from their inventions.
