Every patent has at least one patent claim which defines the scope of the exclusive rights awarded to the patent owner. Products, systems or commercial activities falling within the scope of a patent claim will generally infringe the patent.
The categories of relief available in an action for infringement of patent rights include:
Claims for infringement of patent rights can only be brought by the owner of the right or by an exclusive licensee.
Parties to a dispute involving an allegation of infringement of intellectual property rights may agree (either as an alternative to the traditional litigation process or as part of that process) to resolve their dispute by mediation or arbitration.
