How common is patent infringement?

A phrase that is familiar among inventors, “Everything that can be invented has been invented,” is commonly attributed to a former U.S. Patent and Trademark Office commissioner near the turn of the 20th century, although some claim the quote came from a book published much later. Regardless of its origins, you and other inventors in South Dakota might think the saying is a bit silly. This certainly is an age of great technological progress, and there can be no predicting the inventions and innovations in the decades to come.

10 millionth US patent reflects advance of technology

"You've come a long way, baby." That was the slogan Phillip Morris used to market Virginia Slims, the first cigarette brand marketed specifically to women. Like any legitimate intellectual property, that phrase is trademarked. But another event this week in Washington would seem to deserve some recognition with the phrase. On June 19, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued the country's 10 millionth patent.

Patent law has a reputation as being a rather muted area of practice. Those dedicated to it know that isn't true. It does have its quiet moments and the amount of detail to attention and paperwork it requires can be off-putting to some. But managing patents, trademarks and copyright processes is how new ideas begin to create value and that fosters innovation. There's nothing dull about that.

Don't risk losing your intellectual property rights by failing to act.
