Patentability / Novelty Search
Thorough search for prior art literature to raise questions on patentability of subject matter
This search is effective when an invention is in its nascent stage. It is designed to assist in providing quality solutions and opinions for forming a strategy to go forward with a Patent Application, or not.
Once we are provided with a brief disclosure of the invention, we perform an exhaustive worldwide search of all issued patents, expired patents, published patent applications and other relevant Non-Patent Literature.
Patentability Search is based on the sole criteria of novelty and non-obviousness. Patentability/Novelty search helps to evaluate a particular invention and provides an insight into the already existing technologies and opinions for forming a strategy to go forward with a Patent Application, or not.
It may take quick five-hour Patentability Search to a search that might extend up to a few days, depending upon its complexity.
