Hi
Okay, dumb question.
What is the difference between a patent and a product license in the U.S.A.
Thanks,
Ron

Just a guess, but wouldn’t a license be issued by the patent holder to allow you to make the patented item?

Ger 21 is correct. patent means only you can make it legally. you get 10 yrs. on a patent. license is buying the right to make it. there is a bunk bed company that sells the right to use their name & 800 number. they give you a few plans and a business model & the 1-800-bunk-bed phone number. cost was $1200 i think
