We all know that InventHelp http://theavtimes.com/2020/07/01/amazing-ways-inventhelp-can-assist-you-as-an-inventor/ is there to help people who suffer from a case of misusing inventions; they have been doing this for many years and have a professional reputation for fair play on their part. However, sometimes those with a case need to contact InventHelp more quickly, or need to file a formal complaint, such as against a manufacturer that markets an incorrect product. This article explains how to do this, as well as why you should not hesitate to contact InventHelp if you are doubly interested in pursuing a complaint against a company that is unfair to you.
The first step is to obtain a copy of the customer response to your request for assistance. This document is required by law so that you can follow it exactly to ensure that everything you are supposed to do has been done. All good law firms will supply a customer response (sometimes known as a “basic information package”) upon demand. In case your case involves the case of an invented idea or invention, you may prefer to download a paper from the InventHelp website, which lists out all the documents that you need in detail. You may also be able to acquire a hardback copy of this package at the main office if you require it.
Once you have a copy of the customer response, it’s then time to check what kind of help you can get from InventHelp. This is where you get the basic information package from InventHelp. It should tell you whether the party you have to file a complaint against is a member of the Inventors Association, whether the party is a member of the US Patent and Trademark Office, and what the patentee’s or inventor’s address is. This information should be helpful to you when you contact InventHelp.
Once you have all the basic information, you should decide what kind of complaint you are going to make. Usually, you are required to tell InventHelp if you are a second party to the patent infringement. You are also entitled to tell InventHelp if you are the victim of fraud or if you are an innocent party that has been damaged by the invention. If the latter is the case, you need to immediately contact an independent patent attorney who can advise you on your rights and what to do.
If you are a first party to the complaint and find that you have been the victim of fraud, you can still use InventHelp. However, you should note that if you are not able to provide sufficient proof as to why the inventorship was not true, your complaint will be filed in the wrong category. Therefore, your first priority should be to convince the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office not to assign the invention to the infringer. Once that is done, you can move on to filing a complaint against the infringer. Again, it is important to note that you are entitled to the right of an unbiased and objective examination of the invention by an independent patent examiner. However, patent lawyers will generally discourage their clients from using InventHelp because of the possible adverse impact it could have on their ability to get a successful case.
In cases where the complaint has been found valid, or the offending party has agreed to correct their acts, the InventHelp services will be removed. For example, if the offending party admitted liability but did not offer to pay for damages, or if the offending party is willing to pay for the damages and is willing to adhere to the settlement terms, then the InventHelp services will be removed. On the other hand, InventHelp is not required if the complaint is frivolous or unfounded. In most cases, the InventHelp services are removed if the party involved is not in a financial position to pay the damages, and no reasonable settlement amount has been offered. However, InventHelp will remain active until the party agrees to remove the service.
