PATENTS PROTECT INVENTIONS

Jared Goff works personally with clients to navigate the patent application and examination process. He also represents clients in licensing and enforcing their patent rights. In addition, he works with clients who have been accused of patent infringement. In this capacity, Mr. Goff uses his patent litigation experience to analyze the allegations, prepare patent infringement and patent validity opinions, and advise clients on how to proceed.

A valid patent keeps others from making, using, offering for sale, selling, or importing an invention in the United States. Patents can be obtained on a wide variety of products and processes, including manufacturing processes, machines, electronic devices, software, and business methods.

 

Inventors and businesses gain value from patents in various ways. For example, patent owners often license patents to others in return for royalty payments. Businesses may use patents to keep others from copying their innovative products and processes, allowing the businesses to protect their market share and reap the rewards of their research and development efforts.

 

To apply for a patent, an applicant must file an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The application must meet the requirements set forth in the federal patent laws, including the requirements for the invention to be useful, novel, and non-obvious, and for the application to adequately describe the invention. During the patent examination process, the applicant is often required to file amendments and arguments to convince the Patent Office that the application meets the legal requirements. If the Patent Office determines that the requirements have been met, it grants the patent.

 

Following are two examples of patents Mr. Goff has drafted:

Hand Held Grinder U.S. Patent No. 6,386,961

Sub-Band Voice Codec with Multi-Stage Codebooks and Redundant Coding, U.S. Patent No. 7,177,804
