Essential Ingredients Of Our Invalidity Searches

Understanding of Novelty and Obviousness Concept

We focus on both Novelty and Obviousness / Inventive Concepts while searching. First we focus on novelty aspects, and then we move to obviousness attack. Technology expert's comments on motivation for combining obviousness disclosing prior arts is an integral part of our reports.

Prosecution History Inclusion

We thoroughly refer to and understand the prosecution history of the target patent to see examiner's viewpoint as to why the patent was granted and what the examiner couldn't identify in her/his search. 

Cover All Independent and Dependent Claims

It is our prime motive that we completely kill a threatening patent and not just few annoying claims. For this reason, we target all the independent and dependent claims of the target patent.

Agile Communication

We follow an agile model of communication i.e. keep you updated with the search findings throughout the project cycle and when you are busy we set the right expectations from search initiation to avoid any surprises in outcome and trim the interim connections.

Iteration and Improvisation

Our strategy keeps improving with the duration of project cycle. Our strategies include both structured & unstructured searches - quick searches, followed by structured searches, assignee, inventor, & specific period-based searches. Also, we are open for unlimited iterations till you are completely satisfied.

  • What is a patentability search?
    A patentability search, also known as a novelty or prior art search, is a comprehensive investigation to determine if an invention or idea is eligible for patent protection by identifying prior patents and publications related to the concept.
  • Why should I conduct a patentability search?
    Conducting a patentability search helps assess whether your invention is novel and non-obvious, two essential criteria for patent eligibility. It can save time and resources by avoiding pursuing patents for ideas already in the public domain.
  • When should I conduct a patentability search?
    It's advisable to perform a patentability search before investing significant time and resources in developing your invention, as early as possible in the innovation process.
  • Who should conduct a patentability search?
    Patent attorneys, patent agents, or professional search firms with expertise in intellectual property can perform patentability searches. It's crucial to have someone knowledgeable in patent law and search techniques to ensure comprehensive results.
  • What information is needed for a patentability search?
    To conduct a patentability search, you should provide a detailed description of your invention, including any drawings, diagrams, or prototypes. Additionally, any relevant keywords or phrases can assist in the search.
  • How long does a patentability search take?
    The duration of a patentability search can vary depending on the complexity of the invention and the volume of existing patents and publications. It may take anywhere between 4 to 8 working days.
  • What is considered prior art in a patentability search?
    Prior art includes any publicly available information, such as patents, patent applications, research papers, articles, and any other documentation relevant to the invention's field of technology.
  • What if I find similar prior art during the search?
    If you uncover similar prior art, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't obtain a patent. We can assess the relevance and help you determine if there are distinguishing features that could make your invention patentable.
  • Does a patentability search guarantee a patent grant?
    No, a patentability search doesn't guarantee a patent grant. It only provides information about the existing state of the art. Whether you can obtain a patent depends on various factors, including the novelty and non-obviousness of your invention. We can help you during the prosecution of your patent application resulting into grant of your patent.
  • What are the potential benefits of conducting a patentability search?
    Conducting a patentability search can help you: Avoid pursuing ideas that lack novelty. Save time and money on unnecessary patent applications. Enhance the quality and strength of your patent application. Better understand your competition and the state of the industry in your field of technology.
