Well, not necessarily, right? You have to read patents quite carefully to
understand the claims, which are often narrow and relatively easily
circumvented. In case they're not, one might consider asking to license
rights to certain patents. The patent owner may or may not choose to license
rights, but it's an option that shouldn't be dismissed if one has a good
idea and business motivation.
