Absolutely not! The use of claims made in the application for a patent and the claims that an Independent Distributor can make are vastly different. For instance, in applying for a patent, the focus is on uniqueness and science. The patent applicant, in this case LifeVantage, wants to be a specific and broad as possible to protect the product from anyone seeking to knock it off, or imitate it. Because they are seeking a patent and not trying to market or sell a product, they can make these claims. A Distributor, however, is trying to sell the product and when commerce is involved, claims can be limited by regulation. So, it is not appropriate for a LifeVantage Distributor to use the claims of the patent as his or her own!
