Outsource To Someone You Trust

Our Prior Art Searches cover global patent and technical literature search to determine the novelty or nonobviousness of your invention. We help you make better IP decisions with our expertise across various technology domains, including Life science, Pharmaceutical, Electrical engineering, Medical devices, Digital Media, Environmental Remediation, Mechanical engineering, Material Sciences, IoT and Big Data, Physics. It’s all about identifying search results that precisely meet client needs; we do this by focusing on relevant keywords for them to be found accurately

Performing a prior art search helps determine whether an idea has been patented before or if there are any similar inventions out there that might pose a threat to yours. It also helps ensure that no one else will be able to claim ownership over something they didn’t invent themselves! You can perform a basic prior art search yourself using Google Patents or our services at Patentskart.com, where we provide professional assistance with search for relevant patents and other forms of prior art, so you don’t have to worry about infringing on anyone else’s intellectual property rights!

Types Of Prior Art Searches

Prior art searches take 4 forms: Novelty, Validity, Clearance, and Landscape searches.

Technology Landscape

Novelty Search

Suppose you can verify the patentee purposefully deceived the PTO during the application for the patent. In that case, the patent could be found to be unenforceable. Unenforceable patents are nullified of all the lawsuits in the patent, whereas a patent may still be permitted if it has one or more cases still good. This justification would be straightforward and practical

Whitespace Analysis

Validity Searches

You can demand to have the patent reviewed by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and if they declare it null, this shows that you cannot have infringed upon it. Using Quality Insights, you can get an introductory analysis of how high your probabilities of invalid patent claims are. This is done by examining the prior art, patent strength, and other details regarding that distinct patent.

Clearance Search

Clearance Search

Suppose you can verify the patentee purposefully deceived the PTO during the application for the patent. In that case, the patent could be found to be unenforceable. Unenforceable patents are nullified of all the lawsuits in the patent, whereas a patent may still be permitted if it has one or more cases still good. This justification would be straightforward and practical

Competitor Landscape

Landscape Search

You can demand to have the patent reviewed by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and if they declare it null, this shows that you cannot have infringed upon it. Using Quality Insights, you can get an introductory analysis of how high your probabilities of invalid patent claims are. This is done by examining the prior art, patent strength, and other details regarding that distinct patent.

Patent Search

Following are some Patentability Research services/resources which provide the relevant prior art.

Keyword-Based Searching

A patent keyword search is a form of patent search that looks up terms in multiple patent databases to assist you in finding patent applications that are comparable to your invention. By conducting a patent keyword search, you can discover whether your idea can be patented or whether a competing patent already exists.

Classification Based Search

In about 2 minutes, our tool will search the patent database by category (CPC/IPC), classification number, and F-terms to return relevant results for your query! This will save you hours of work and allow you to get started building a product based on existing technology much faster than previously

Inventor Based Searching

With Assignee/Inventor-based search, it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for someone inside your own company or across many companies around the globe. You can find by both assignee and inventor so that you’ll always be able to find who you need; when you need them, will provide you with a list of databases (menu).

Citation Analysis

Citations are the building blocks of citation analysis, and they have many beneficial uses. Backward citations on patent applications can be studied to find out where an idea was first introduced, while forward citations reflect how important it has been over time for other patents in your field or industry with your results

Non-Patent Literature Search

An NPL is any publicly available material that is not a patent or a pending/expired publication in a patent office. The NPLs assist in identifying key domain competitors and market giants with products similar to your inventions;  identifying different application areas of the invention

Contributory Infringement

Someone provides a part of a product to help someone else violate a patent. That part must not have any other valid use.

FAQs

Review for Prior Art Search involves searching publicly available sources to discover whether an invention has been previously described in other references (i.e., prior art) or not. If it has been described in a prior art reference, a later-filed patent application would not be granted as anticipated by the search prior art. In short, if there is a publication date before the filing date of the patent application and that publication describes or consists all aspects of the invention as claimed, the invention will not be considered as novel, and therefore ineligible for patent protection. Besides helping to find out novelty, patentability, prior art searches can generate ideas for research and development (R & R&D).

Not, all prior art disqualifies an invention from being able to receive a patent. Prior art essentially refers to the entire span of human knowledge, and if one effectively differentiated an invention even from a similar one, a patent may be secured.

Prior art searches are vital because it controls the ability to gain intellectual property (IP) rights over an invention. Suppose the inventor is unable to gain IP rights. In that case, the creation may have a decreased market value and the inventor may be not able to prevent rivals from entering the market or be forced to obtain licenses from the life IP rights holder.

Except where the inventor is an expert in his field of an invention and has a great understanding of industry trends but without a prior art search, an inventor will be operating in information and will not be able to form an educated opinion about whether the investor can obtain a patent protection on the invention.
