How can I protect the rights to my design?
Your design patent essentially protects the rights to your design. However, someone else may infringe upon your rights. If this happens, you can sue that person for infringement of patent law. This is where the help of an Orange County patent attorney can become particularly vital. As the patent holder, you can ask a court for an injunction to prevent any further infringement, as well as ask for compensation for the damages incurred.
Filing a Design Patent Application in Orange County
First, you should have an Orange County patent attorney conduct a thorough search of the patents that the USPTO has granted. You don’t want your design to conflict with a design that already exists. And then you can proceed by filing your design patent application.
The patent application process can be long, daunting and sometimes confusing. Your California patent attorney can guide you through the entire process helping you to avoid the common mistakes most filers make and improving your chances of acquiring a patent. Your California patent attorney will also be invaluable in the event that someone infringes upon your rights as the inventor of the design.
