Iam glad to see such a platform, where a preliminary legal advice is provided promptly and free of cost.
Well I hope the same support for my cause.Here it is
There is an unique process in making a product in certain food making
As per what I found in the internet database, the patent for the same process has already been taken by some one in US.
Recently I found someone in India who has set a business by using the same technique. Now following are my queries
1. Is there any veracity in the claim ,if the person who has commercialized the same technique in India says he got a patent to do so?
2. I too want to start a business where and in which I shall use the same technique, then in that case will there be any patent related objections from that Indian guy?
3. Suppose I have invented a way by which I can increase the efficiency of that US patented process, now can I patent my invention as I have increased the efficiency of the already patented process?
I remain in anticipation for your kind response.
Thanks & Regards,
