You have a patent, and you believe someone is infringing it. There are a number of ways to address the infringement, such as send a cease and desist letter or file a lawsuit. But posturing for litigation is not always the best option. Just because you have rights does not mean that you should run to court to enforce them or even threaten to enforce them. Instead, a strategy to deal with a potential infringer should be well thought out and include an analysis of a variety of factors.
