#103295 - Really?
Responding to: Terry Lingle's previous message
Terry Lingle said:
There is a diligence requirement in defense of a patent.

Is it? I thought that was the case with trademarks (i.e. can't let your trademark go generic) but wasn't the case with patents and copyrights. I.e., I thought that just because you didn't enforce a patent or a copyright doesn't mean that you lose your right to do so elsewhere; but that if you let your trademark slide into generic use, you essentially lose the right to try to defend it.

Of course, I could be wrong. I'm not a patent lawyer. I'm not even a lawyer, period!
