A Patentability search is performed to determine the novelty and non-obviousness of an invention. Novelty is one of the most important criteria that decide whether an invention can be considered to be patentable. Keeping this in mind, we conduct an extensive search of the entire patent and non-patent literature to unearth any technologies or work that falls in the same purview as that of said invention or brief disclosure given by the client.This kind of search is usually effective when an invention is still in its developing stage so as to assist you in determining a strategy for a patent application in the future.Besides providing insights into already existing technologies, a novelty/patentability search also helps you to assess position in the market.
Patent alert and watch is an efficient monitoring and tracking system of both published patent applications and issued patents. These services assist clients in looking for patents of their interest that have been abandoned/ rejected/ expired and freely using them without any legal threat.Patent alert and patent watch searches are tailor-made to suit clients requirements. Typically, these services are conducted on a systematic basis (weekly/ biweekly/ monthly/ quarterly), and are classified as the following two types:
Invalidation/Validation Searches are exhaustive prior art search conducted after the grant of patent to either validate the enforce-ability of the granted claims made by a patent or to invalidate one or more claims of a competitor’s patent. The methods and resources adopted for Validity / Invalidity searches are same with the only difference being the results generated (valid or invalid patent claims). The invalidity/validity searches are extensive as they aim to probe into a large number of patents, patent applications, and all the non-patent documents available.
Patent Infringement Searches are conducted in order to identify products, technology standards or specifications which potentially infringes you patent. We identify all the products infringing your patent claims and prepare claim charts, clearly pointing out how each element of the patent claims are demonstrably present in the infringing product. Patent Infringement Search is therefore essential to understand the claim scope of the subject patent.This process involves a complete analysis of the product description which includes analysis of manuals, manufacturing sheets, white papers and other product documents.

Since a patent has limited time span, scope and is applicable in particular countries, Freedom to Operate (FTO) or Clearance Search helps to evaluate whether a proposed product has freedom to operate in a country. Freedom to Operate/Clearance Search determines any infringement of a patent by a product or service to be launched. It is a jurisdiction-based search that evaluates any intellectual property rights that may hinder the manufacturing and marketing of a product in particular countries. A FTO search conducted can help in deciding the direction of product development. […]
