Patent Infringement

Patent infringement is an everyday occurrence!
A patent gives the patent owner the right to “exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling” a product that includes the patented invention. Patent infringement occurs across all industries and all sectors of the economy. There are no Patent Police, so fighting patent infringement is the job of the company that owns the patent. While the Patent Office issues patents, it does not pursue infringers nor does it investigate claims of patent infringement.

Patent infringement is the unauthorized use of your property!
When another business infringes your business’s patent, it is trespassing on your intellectual property. An infringer takes from your business the revenue your patented invention generates for them and would have generated for you. You have the right – even the obligation – to sue patent infringers, but a patent infringement lawsuit is often a David-versus-Goliath struggle. When the patent owner is a small business, and the patent infringement defendant is a large corporation, it’s not a fair fight!

The cost of patent litigation can run from a few hundred thousand dollars to a few million of dollars, so most small businesses are simply not financially able to enforce their IP rights regardless of how blatant the infringement of their patents may be! Infringers know this, so many infringe the patents of small businesses and inventors with impunity.

You need a patent infringement champion
That’s why business owners turn to General Patent Corporation (GPC) when they are faced with patent infringement. Our legal staff will analyze your patent infringement claim, and if we determine that you have a viable patent infringement assertion, we will offer to manage and finance a patent enforcement campaign on your business’s behalf.

One result of the patent enforcement campaign we launch on your behalf may be a license or several licenses that produce royalty income for your business for the use of your patent. We may also be able to secure payment for past infringement of your patent. If you manufacture a product that uses your patent, we may also be able to sue infringers for the lost profits caused by sales of their products that infringed your company’s patent.

No cost on to you
General Patent underwrites all expenses involved in any patent infringement litigation we pursue on your behalf. That includes filing fees, research, experts and expert witnesses, court reporters and depositions, document production, discovery proceedings, trial demonstratives, travel expenses and all other litigation expenses (or “disbursements”). We are not repaid until we reach a successful resolution of your patent infringement claim, sharing in a portion of all revenue generated by the patent enforcement campaign per an agreed-to formula.
