EasyCare has devoted a considerable amount of resources to intellectual property. This effort has been spent for the benefit of EasyCare and our dealer network in two areas:
1) Ensuring our designs do not infringe on the patent rights of others:
Extensive patent searches have been performed and are performed when new products are introduced.
2) Protecting the unique ideas that make the EasyCare hoof boots work so well:
Currently, EasyCare has two US patents issued, a PCT patent issued and several more pending. Patents are also pending worldwide.
