A: If you give a competent patent attorney a set of patent claims and a specific product, the attorney can give you a pretty good guess as to whether a jury could be convinced that the product does or does not infringe the claims. A competent attorney will not answer an open ended question like the one that you seem to be posing.

If there are more details that would make your question answerable, you should communicate those details to an attorney privately, not on an open forum like this.

A: Patents have a specific structure that includes an abstract summarizing the invention, a detailed description explaining how to make and use the invention, drawings if applicable, and most importantly, a claims section that defines the legal boundaries of exactly what is being patented.

Without being able to review those key sections of the patent document, I don't have enough context to determine what the scope of the patent protection covers in terms of europallet stacking procedures. If you're able to provide the patent text, I'll be happy to take a closer look and try to summarize what it seems to claim and not claim. Just let me know if you have that information available to share.
