  1. […] Apart from the patent search tools mentioned above, here are several more as listed by Landon IP‘s blog – Intellogist: […]

  2. With reference to the case of Keith Taylor’s turn signal, I would expect that the clock stops ticking on a patent while it is being litigated.

    That is important, otherwise a litigant could simply cause delays to a case until their rival’s patent expires.

    (Likewise for warranties and guarantees, otherwise the time period during which, for example, an appliance, is unavailable to it’s owner due to a fault is subtracted from the warranty/guarantee period, e.g. if the clock does not stop and an appliance is under warranty service for 3 months, half a 6 month warranty/guarantee simply evaporates.)
