Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand Honolulu Patent Attorneys

Our experienced Honolulu 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 Honolulu 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

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'

Patent Ambiguity

  • 5 min read

What Is Patent Ambiguity?

Patent ambiguity refers to uncertainty on the face of a legal document. This gives the agreement or contract an indefinite meaning. When a document includes a patent ambiguity, no external evidence can show the testator's intention, which remains unclear. A patent ambiguity may invalidate an agreement or contract.

Patent Ambiguity: What Is It?

Also known as intrinsic ambiguity, ambiguitas patens, or Section 93 of the Indian Evidence Act, patent ambiguity makes the intention behind a legal document unclear. Relying on the plain meaning of the words doesn't allow for clear interpretation. Instead, the document's obscure or senseless language makes its overall meaning ambiguous.

This happens, for instance, when a contract includes two sale prices that contradict each other. Patent ambiguities also arise in last wills and testament
