What happens if a person is using your invention for his or her own benefit?

One may inform the person in writing that he is infringing on your invention. One can not sue a person while it is a provisional application. Only nine months after the granting of a complete patent can one institute action. The infringement action may include a claim for an interdict, delivery up of things involving infringement and damages.
