Q: I want to create bioluminescent Oranda goldfish with jellyfish extract. Will I breach any of these parents?
Whether you infringe a pre-existing patent(s) with your product/method can likely be greater informed by completing a prior art search.
If you do not have a product and want to file a patent application based on your invention, a prior art search should still be completed.
If you are planning to produce a product, utilize a particular method, or file an application for your invention, an IP attorney can assist you. In the meantime, I'd keep any related research, experimentation or ideas confidential.
