"You should always have in mind your preferred outcome before taking action, so you can work towards that objective. You shouldn't just think – hey, they're infringing my patent, I'm going to sue them! Taking legal action is serious and can be very expensive, so you should always talk to a patent attorney first to assess everything before making any rash decisions."
