In reference to the patent: US20140207087
US 20130180449 A1 precedes this claimed patent and is a direct copy of my original design. What steps are available to me to discredit this patent filing?
Here is a link to our original patent: -
The picture attached is the same booth (Opus 4 - our booth) manufactured here in the UK to my original drawings and protected by patent US 20130180449. Drawings were issued to Norvell so they could manufacture under license. They have made certain modifications by adding a peristaltic fluid pump (known technology) and Turbine Blower (known technology) to generate fluid deliver and air flow to the spray nozzle but the mechanics and areas protected by our patent are identical and therefore infringe.
Norvell in full knowledge of our patent have also failed to include our patent in their Citation reference.
What is our next step in removing this Norvell patent and taking action to recover any costs that may have resulted in additional sales that we are now aware of outside the terms of our manufacturing agreement?
