Especially in the U.S., correct inventorship is important. Co-inventors are not strictly analogous with co-authors. In the U.S., all true inventors must be listed. An inventor is someone who makes a conceptual contribution to something that is claims. The only legitimate reasons to remove an inventor would either be for them to decide that you were listed ...

Yes. The links in the question lead to google patents where you can find the link to espacenet. In the legal section you see that the patent got granted and the fees were paid. It doesn't say lapsed or anything like it. You could find the same information at 'Public Pair' (google it). The priority date of the patent seems to be 2006, therefore the patent ...

First thing to point out, neither WO2015191648A1 nor US20190365145A1 are patents. Both are applications. Applications get reviewed by patent offices and only if they are deemed sufficiently new and novel issued as patents. Claims in applications are nearly always broader than the subsequent issued patent. I'm not a lawyer, but I'll take a crack at answering ...

Google only provides a limited amount of information about the patent status. This is a PCT (International) application, so you need to check multiple sources (WIPO/Patentscope, Espacenet and USPTO) in order to find the status of the application in all relevant countries. For instance the USPTO Public Pair database has the US application (US 2012/0065024 A1)...

I don't want to conflate the legal status of the application(s) with the time gap between publication and assignment. An assignment can happen during examination of the application or after the patent is granted, so there is not necessarily a link between the assignment of this application and the date of publication. As is the case for many patents, it is ...

The best place to determine the status of US patents and applications is the US Public Pair site. In the case of US20070257041, the current status is "Abandoned -- Failure to Respond to an Office Action". The status date is 10-15-2008 which means the applicant failed to respond to an office action (in this case a non-final rejection) in 2008. While it may ...

Even if the marked patent is expired, there may be other patents (or designs) that are pending and in force, which would cover the product. The key way to assess this is to perform a freedom-to-operate search. However, if you are intending to produce something which is identical to a product ...

I think Google Patents has the application title correct: Medical device, method of making and using the same. However, that does sound more like the title of a patent class, not a patent application. This was the title from the original specification document (March 12, 2014): However, a revised specification (April 4, 2014) provided a new title: "Ostomy ...
