In this episode…

Getting a patent is meant to protect the patent holder’s design for their product. A patent gives the holder an advantage over others who might want to use the same design to create their own products.

However, having a patent doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to infringe on someone else’s patent. There are situations where your registered design could be similar to what someone else had already patented—and this could lead to lawsuits being filed against you. In such cases, your intellectual property (IP) attorney must take the time to research and investigate further on the matter.

In this episode of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast, Rich Goldstein is joined by Ben Leonard, the Founder of Beast Gear, to discuss how you can infringe on another person’s patent—even if you’ve registered your own. Ben shares his own experience dealing with an IP lawsuit and talks about the benefits of working with professional IP attorneys. He also talks about selling his business and how he helps other entrepreneurs through the process.
