My question is I have both a new design on an existing product which is being used in the marketplace extensively. My new design is completely different which would fall under a design patent.
However more importantly I am wondering if I am able to file for a utility patent for a line of products which would rely on using a product that their technology is already patented and applied in a variety of products currently in a variety of industries, however it is currently not being used within this industry for a specific purpose.
Am I able to file both a utility and a design patent in this case using this already patented technology for this specific industry?
Thank you for any sound feedback!
