Are there any patent or resale concerns?

Expert: Hank Bulmash

Angele asked:

I have a product I would like to make and sell in Ontario. My concern is that although I will be fabricating most of the item from scratch, I would like to include a certain type of clip with the item to facilitate it's use.

I wanted to know if because I will be purchasing the clip and then reselling it with the item, are there any patent or resale concerns I should be aware of?

Hank Bulmash answered:

Based on your question, I can't imagine any problems with your idea. I understand you're buying the clip from its producer or a distributor. Using it for some purpose shouldn't lead to any patent problems from the use of the clip.

Any patent concerns would relate to the product you're planning to sell rather than the use of this specific component.
