Citing a Patent

  1. Apr 16, 2015 #1
    Good morning,

    I have a question related to patents for any of you that have one or own one.
    What does it mean for you if someone cites your patent in their patent?

    You don't really get anything except for a higher h-index when someone cites your paper, what would you get when someone cites a patent.

    Thank you

    Indeed. Nothing more than that.
