S-5! and its team members, for decades, have taken great pride in developing new and innovative products marketed within the metal roofing industry. Many of these have been described in U.S. and foreign patent applications and been covered by claims issuing from those patent applications. We had never imagined that we would amalgamate such a huge portfolio of innovations resulting with over 50 issued patents over the course of the 25-year history of our company.
We at S-5! have always informed the marketplace of these innovative proprietary products through our various marketing materials, product packaging and sometimes on the parts themselves advising that some of our products are patent protected.
Patents have a certain “shelf life” and periodically expire. Until very recently, we were unaware that it is necessary to update our materials to reflect that a patent no longer covers a product or component, even though it once did. We apologize for this unintentional oversight.
We also want you to know that we have now corrected that issue and put in place new systematic procedures to ensure that such oversight does not occur in the future. Literature, packaging and website will now reference a webpage that will contain real-time information in this regard or links to that information.
Finally, we currently have product inventory. Some is marked with “Patented” on the product itself, but the patent covering it has expired. So as not to needlessly waste resources, we will be selling out that inventory of products, but will be including a copy of this statement in the packaging of all products that are marked “Patented”, but where the patent has expired, thus alerting the customer that the product is not covered by patent.
