How A Patent Validity Search Can Help
A patent validity is a great patent service that could help protect you or your company from an infringement lawsuit now and in the future. A patent validity search helps go over the whole patent application and thoroughly looks at the patent scope for the technology and the design under patent protection. Patent validity is meant to help you and/or your companies understand what your patent rights are and where you legally stand.
Recent News For A Patent Service
Recently there has been a technical patent battle between the major electronic companies like Nokia, HPT, Research in Motion, and ViewSonic. Nokia has filed an infringement lawsuit on some of these major companies for the technology used in mobile devices. Nokia has several patents on the technology used in most mobile devices, but they did allow the other companies to lease out some of the patents through licensed agreements.
In their lawsuit Nokia is claiming these mobile companies have used technology outside of the licenses granted. The press release (http://press.nokia.com/2012/05/02/nokia-takes-new-steps-to-protect-its-innovations-and-intellectual-property/) from Nokia states,
“Nokia proprietary innovations protected by these patents are being used by the companies to enable hardware capabilities such as dual function antennas, power management and multimode radios, as well as to enhance software features including application stores, multitasking, navigation, conversational message display, dynamic menus, data encryption and retrieval of email attachments on a mobile device.”
How A Patent Firm Can Help
Now HPT, Research in Motion, and ViewSonic should be conducting a patent validity search to protect them. Their patent attorney or patent firm needs to find strong enough evidence to support their claims that they are not infringing upon any of Nokia’s patents. If they fail to prove this, they could owe Nokia a lot of money and have to remove the technology from their mobile devices, which could mean removal of their products from the market.
