Patent protection

cheft's Avatar

Can you get patent protection on an item that part of the new invention use pieces that have patents on them? Another question is supposing you design an item that looks similar to another patented item but has a completely different purpose for use. 

Thanks for your time

Hi Tom!

Thank you for your question. It is against Edison Nation's policy to provide any type of legal guidance. As always, we recommend consulting with a patent attorney to determine next steps.

We wish you the best of luck!
