Why Patentskart?

A quick novelty check, prior to drafting or filing a patent application, can determine the likelihood of getting a patent and in-turn save huge costs involved in maintaining patents.

We perform extensive searches to analyze the scope of an invention in light of the identified prior art references, which can help you determine whether a potential invention is novel and patentable. Intellectual property, especially patents, is one of the most critical intangible assets of an organization 2013 especially the ones that sustain majorly upon research and innovation. Given that a patent offers its assignee the unique rights towards the use of product technology and blocks others from infringing upon their patent for a very long period of time, it is imperative that patents are not granted to every idea that is ever ideated.

A patentability search, also known as a novelty search, is conducted before filing a patent application to ensure the novelty uniqueness of the invention.  By performing a novelty search for prior art, the inventor, patent lawyer, or a patent examiner can figure whether someone else already has had the same idea or not, along with the details of the previous invention. If the search returns that someone has already worked on a similar idea, you can save money, time and effort by not filing the application OR alter improve your idea such that it meets the criteria of patentability.

  • There are three major requirements for patentability: 2013
  • Novelty-your idea or invention must be new and original, never seen or done before
  • Inventive step and non-obviousness- Not an obvious combination of prior innovations or ideas.
  • Industrial applicability- The invention must be helpful (credible and substantial)

The ideal time to conduct a Patentability Search is before preparing the patent application to determine whether the invention is novel and non-obvious.

This search is typically conducted when an inventor is interested in applying for a patent and determines whether a similar or identical invention already exists. The main aspects targeted in a patent search are providing opinions on Novelty Uniqueness, Inventive Step, and Industrial Applicability of the invention.
