PATENT INFRINGEMENT

Making, using, selling or offering to sell a patented invention without authorization of the patent holder(s) is patent infringement. An item or process is infringing if it is a duplicate copy or if it basically performs the same function in the same way to achieve the same result as the patented invention.
