In-House Legal Counsel
Poly-Tek is unique among other custom molders in that we have our in-house patent counsel. Patent trolling remains an on-going problem, even in the manufacturing industries. Some companies seek, and unfortunately, the United States Patent Office will often grant a patent on technology that has long been part of the public domain. Moreover, these same companies will threaten legal action, knowing full well that their patents are invalid, in order to coerce others out of a market for a particular product. Thankfully we can help you. We can work with you in navigating the complex nuances of patent law and limit your exposure to any legal liability. Our in-house counsel and engineers work together to come up with alternative designs that will not infringe on patents that may exist for a particular part.
