Virtual Patent Markings

Under the AIA, patent owners may now “virtually mark” their products with a patent notice by affixing to the patented article the word “Patent” (or abbreviated to “Pat.”) followed by the URL address of the web page that will have the patent(s) associated with the product.  We have more information about Virtual Patent Markings on our patent law firm website including examples of how to mark your products and example virtual marking web pages.
