Patent Litigation: Understanding Trademark & Copyright Litigation

Patent litigation refers to lawsuits that arise from revocation proceedings and patent infringement lawsuits.

What is patent infringement? A person or entity is said to have infringed on someone’s intellectual property rights when they offer, use, or sell one or more patented inventions without asking for the permission of the person who holds the approved patent for that invention.

Patent Lawsuit Example: A patent revocation proceeding pertains to legal proceedings from firms (or individuals) who do not wish to be sued for patent infringement. Essentially, a patent revocation proceeding questions “wrongly-granted patents” in court.
