Selling My Product While Patent Application Pending

Posted by Michael Shimokaji | Aug 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

Question: Can I sell my product if the patent application is still in process?

Question Detail: I've heard it can sometimes take several years to get the patent and I want to start promoting and selling as soon as possible. I just don't want to break any laws.

Answer: You can sell your product while the application is still in process. But even if you get a patent, the sale of your product might infringe another's patent.
