Title: Does a patent in US stop the same product to be manufactured in India
Post by: givebest on February 28, 2015, 04:52:24 AM
Hi

I have an idea, it is a simple engineering product that I want to produce and sell in India, but I understand for the same product, some one owns a patent in the US and the product is being successfully produced and sold for millions of dollars in the USA.

Does the fact that it is already patented, produced and successfully marketed in the USA, STOP me from manufacturing and commercially selling in India? Will there be any problem by the US company to me in future when the same product is launched by me in India?

You patent it in India, than manufacture it here, if a dispute arises the court will make a decision on it

Patent registered in India has world wide protection

You cannot manufacture a product if you have not invented it, even if it is patented in US because you canít copy some other person work on your name and manufacture it.

I believe the particular patent will only be valid in US until the company register in india and hold the patent in india
