Intellectual Property Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for intellectual property cases in federal court can vary depending on the type of intellectual property at issue. Below are some examples of the statute of limitations for some common types of intellectual property cases:
Patent Infringement: For most patents, the statute of limitations is six years from the time the cause of action accrues.
Trademark Infringement: The statute of limitations for trademark infringement is typically three years from the date the infringement occurred.
Copyright Infringement: The statute of limitations for copyright infringement is typically three years from the date of the infringing act.
Trade Secrets: The statute of limitations for trade secret misappropriation is typically three years from the date of the misappropriation.
It's important to note that some states may have different statute of limitations for these types of cases, and that some other specific circumstances may affect the statute of limitations. It's always best to consult with an attorney to determine the specific statute of limitations for a particular case.
