Frequently Asked Questions

What precautionary measures are to be taken in the selection and placement of the marking that a patent is pending or has been granted?
The selected marking should not leave any doubt about the subject matter actually under patent protection.

For example, the marking should be applied on the component that incorporates the patented invention and not on the product in which the component is integrated.

In placing the marking on the packaging, it is important to make sure that there is no doubt that it is the content and not the packaging which is protected.
