Air2Water LLC would like to place any individuals or companies who are manufacturing or distributing atmospheric water generations machines that infringe upon our patent rights on notice, that not only have we been successful in our legal actions against others who have infringed upon our rights, we are and will aggressively seek action against any entities who infringe upon these patent rights.

United States federal law. 35 U.S.C. 271 defines infringement as "whoever without authority makes, uses, offers for sell or sells any patented invention, within the United States during the term of the patent therefore, infringes the patent." or equivalent therefore.
Infringement can be direct, indirect, or contributory. Anyone who makes, uses, or sells the patented invention is a direct infringer. If a person actively encourages another to make, use, or sell the invention, the person so inducing is liable for indirect infringement. Contributory infringement can be committed by knowingly selling or supplying an item for which the only use is in connection with a patented invention. Good faith or ignorance is no defense for direct infringement, but it can be for indirect or contributory infringement.
Knowingly infringing on a patented his willful infringement and subject of triple damages and legal fees and maybe punitive damages (see below).
