Our patentability searches helps in assessing the likelihood for securing patent protection for your inventive idea.
Our patentability search involves searching the prior art, which includes published patent applications, issued patents, and any other published documents in light of your invention, with the aim of determining whether your patent application is worth pursuing based on the patentability aspects of the inventive concept. The basic purpose of a patentability search is to better assess the likelihood of securing patent protection for an invention.
This search answers the questions like your idea is truly novel or not, has it already been patented, has it been anticipated or rendered obvious.Since the cost of preparing, filing and prosecuting or attempting to prosecute a patent application is substantial, the search suggests will it be worth the cost to file a patent at all for the idea and will it be worth the effort and expense to fully develop and market your concept.
This search not only makes the application process easier but also helps to strengthen the invention against issues of validity. The search report includes relevant patent and non-patent prior art references listed in a comprehensive manner. Patent search is conducted using public and subscribed patent databases that cover patents from around the globe. Non-patent literature search is conducted in the relevant technology domain using scientific databases.
