General Question about patent

I have a general question. If a company is building a product with an already existing spacy model. Suppose if the company wants to patent the product? can they do it? will there be any conflict?

Hey! That's not something we can answer for you. You should talk to a patent lawyer.

spaCy is released under the MIT license, which is generally very permissive. The model licenses depend on the data the models were trained on and you can find the details in the models directory. It's uncelar, though, how this would be evaluated from a patent point of view, so, tl;dr talk to a lawyer :smiley:
