Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Cedar City Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Cedar City patent attorneys & lawyers represent individuals and businesses throughout the world with domestic and foreign patent preparation and prosecution matters. They have extensive experience handling applications from nearly every sector of technology, including biotechnology, computer hardware and software, communication networks, internet systems and methods, automotive, medical equipment, construction technology, consumer electronics, and clean technology research and development.

Our patent attorneys are of the most highly trained in the industry, requiring a scientific background, and passing a second level of testing known as the Patent Bar Examination. Thousands of patents are submitted to the patent office every day and a patent committee reviews each patent for its validity. The process requires that correctly drafted documentation present a clear case for the novelty of the invention, which is best made by a patent attorney with a higher education background in your industry.

Our Cedar City patent attorneys & lawyers can help you file a provisional patent, which lasts for 1-year and allows you to immediately begin using/manufacturing your invention with the confidence that your idea is protected. These types of patents are great if you think your idea will change a lot over the next year before you file a (non-provisional) patent. These patents are easier to obtain and are less expensive but you should have a patent lawyer review your provisional patent application to insure that you are meeting your objectives when you file your patent.

Inducing Infringement

  • 5 min read

What Does Inducing Infringement Mean?

Inducing infringement means that a party is responsible for someone copying an idea without permission which can take the form of a trademark, copyright, or patent infringement. The party didn't do the infringing, but the infringement is still their fault.

For example, let's say someone invents a self-inflating balloon and then patents it. The inventor then sells the patent to a major company, and now the balloon is sold in every department store. Years later, the inventor says he still owns the patent and sells it to a different company. Once the second company starts selling self-inflating balloons, the first company can sue it for infringement, and it can sue the inventor for inducing infringement. While he didn't infringe on the patent directly, it's his fault the second company did.

Inducing infringement applies to tra

Licensing Agreement

  • 13 min read

What Is a Licensing Agreement?

A licensing agreement, or license agreement, is a deal between the owner of a patent, brand, or trademark and someone who wants to use the patented or trademarked goods and services. The license grants permission to the licensee and includes stipulations. The licensee must honor these guidelines. One of the rules in the licensing agreement is usually a financial arrangement to pay for use of the license.

What Are the Elements of a Standard Licensing Agreement?

Most licensing agreements have standard clauses to cover the issues that arise most often in licensing negotiations. These clauses include the following:

  • Contract length: A licensing agreement has a start date and an end date. One party usually prefers a longer contract than the other. Thus, renewal rules are also included.
  • Dispute resolution: This is a standard clause that discusses terms in the even

Patent Exhaustion

  • 7 min read

What Is Patent Exhaustion?

Patent exhaustion happens when a patented item, typically under a utility patent, is legally made and sold in the United States and the person who holds the patent gives up all rights to it. 

If you patent your invention and sell it to someone, you give up your rights over the use of that item. This is especially true if the only value in your invention is in its use. This applies to any patented product, but think about your car. The make and model of your car have a patent. As an individual, after you buy the car, you can give it away, sell it, or make any changes you want to it without worrying about being sued by the automaker. However, you can make patented items for sale subject to some terms of sale or license agreements. 

When Patent Exhaustion Doesn't Apply

There are times when patent exhaustion doesn't apply. If you

Patent Troll

  • 6 min read

What is a Patent Troll?

A patent troll is a person or business that buys patents from other companies, files lawsuits against other businesses to blame them for patent infringement, and then profit from the lawsuit instead of producing its own goods or services.

What Do They Do?

Patent trolls typically follow this pattern:

  1. Patent trolls send letters to businesses in distress or other targets and offer to buy their patents.

  2. After the companies sell their patents, the patent trolls find their victims. Their victims can be businesses that might use a process or design that's like the patents they've just bought.

  3. Trolls then threaten to sue those companies for patent infringement.

Patent lawsuits can cost millions of dollars. As a result, companies often pay licensing fees which is often cheaper than fighting the case in court.

  • 27 min read

What Is a Patent Infringement Case?

Patent infringement cases result when a patent owner, or any entity who holds sufficient interest in a U.S. patent, files legal action against someone they claim is using the patented creation without permission.

Your defenses in a patent infringement case can include:

  • Invalidating the patent
  • Claiming non-infringement
  • Citing prior use, first sale or repair doctrines, inequitable conduct, patent misuse, or limitation on rights
  • Laches, formerly an important defense, may soon no longer be valid
