What can I do if someone infringes my patent ?

Patents are territorial and are filed in each country where protection is sought. This means you can only act against infringement in the countries your patent is granted. If you discover that someone infringes your patent, you’ll have to take action to stop it. You can start by contacting the other party to inform them of your patent right and their infringement and ask them to stop the infringement immediately. If an amicable solution is not possible you will have to take legal action to enforce your rights.

As patent litigation is a complex matter, you should seek assistance from a specialized legal patent professional to help you when you are dealing with infringement.
