In reference to the patent: USD 705,533 S

Is this design patent valid worldwide? I've been selling a similar product (different in design, materials and size) for years without knowing about this, I'm in México, I don't pretend to export or claim rights over the product I make, just selling it for college funding purposes.


Patents are only valid in the country they are issued. There is no such thing as a worldwide patent. This particular patent is a US Design patent. As such, this patent cannot be enforced in Mexico (or anywhere outside of the US). The only concern would be whether there is a counterpart patent issued in Mexico.
