Intellectual Property

The term Intellectual Assets is a broad term to comprise Patents, Trade-Marks, Copyrights and Industrial Design, such as Trade Secrets, Formulas, etc.  Each type of intellectual asset has its own development course and rules of law concerning same.  Method and Device patents come into being through knowledge of the industry, experience and through research results.  As example, as the scope of a research project is being defined Erchonia is also assessing the patentability of the method that will be the final outcome of the study protocol, once approved.  Additionally, if clinical trial results dictate a modification to an existing device, the changes are compared against existing patents and submitted.  The outcome of this approach ensures that the protocol defined in the study is protected by a method patent, and the device used in the study is protected by a device patent; both held by Erchonia.  Trade-Marks are defined in support of a product and / or method and represent the branding of our line.  Erchonia actively protects their intellectual assets as Intellectual Assets, and the control of same; add to the financial strength and potential of our company.

The following list of Erchonia IP covers US patents issued, US pending patents that have reached the published for public knowledge stage of the review process, and issued US trademarks.  This list does not cover the numerous pending patents in the US that have not cycled to the publishing phase and / or our International patents, patent pending and trademarks.  Erchonia Corporation hold numerous foreign patents and trademarks, as each US filed is accompanied by application via the PCT.
