Under the patent statute, direct infringement generally requires a single entity to perform or use each and every step or element of a claimed method or product. Other entities that assist in the infringement may be liable for indirect infringement (i.e., contributory infringement or inducement to infringe), but there can be no indirect infringement without proof of direct infringement.
