Doctrine of Equivalents

  • 9 min read

What Is the Doctrine of Equivalents?

The doctrine of equivalents is a legal method for a patent owner to file an infringement claim even though the original product is not completely identical to the infringing product. 

There are a variety of ways for patent holders to protect their intellectual property. One of these methods is called the "doctrine of equivalents" (DOE). The doctrine of equivalents lets a patent holder sue for infringement if the product in question isn't exactly the same as the original. This prevents someone from making minor changes to a product in order to avoid an infringement case. 

In these cases, the Court will examine whether the infringing product is for the same purpose or completes the same function as the original product. If the product is found to be equivalent in these ways, then the patent holder will win their claim. 

This doctrine was established in Graver Tank & Mfg. Co. v.

What Are Likelihood of Confusion Factors?

Likelihood of confusion factors are the legal standards used to determine whether trademark infringement has occurred. The factors are also used as one of several tests conducted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to determine whether a trademark application is approved.

The likelihood of confusion test is used to decide if a trademark is likely to be confused with another trademark. 

The Role of a Trademark Attorney

The attorney that is examining the trademark needs to do a search of the USPTO records to find out whether the applicant's mark is similar to any other registered mark that may cause confusion or mistake if it is used on or in connection with the same type of goods or services as th
