Legal Answers
54 Questions Answered
Q. I need to know if this is breaching a Patent.
A: The issue is how different is your invention from other products claimed in patents and patent applications, or disclosed in the literature. You should consult a patent attorney to assist you with a patentability evaluation of your product.
Q. I have a display patent from 1993 I'd like to know if there's some way I can update it ?
A: If your patent issued in 1993 it expired in 2010, unless its term was extended by the USPTO because of delays in prosecution or for other reasons. If you want to update your invention, you will need to file a new patent application, but your changes will need to be novel and non-obvious over your original patent and any additional intervening prior art. You should consult a patent attorney.
Q. Would it be possible to patent a refrigerated tear drop style camper?
A: It would be best to hire a patent attorney to do a patentability search. But in the meantime you may want to check databases such as Google Patents and the USPTO web site by entering the terms that best describe your invention.
