Design Patent Search

For design patents, the first step patenting service includes two parts: the first part is the prior art search, and, the second part is the patentability evaluation. Back to Design Patent Services.

Design Patenting Step 1:

Part 1 of 2: Prior Art Search  

A prior art search is research to find all the products and inventions similar to an invention that you want to patent. It is done to determine if design is disclosed in the existing patents, patent applications, and non patent literature from around the world. In other words, it is done to find out whether the design (or an obvious precursor) is already known somewhere in the world.

Part 2 of 2: Patentability Evaluation

A patentability evaluation is a patentability study of an invention based on the prior art. The patentability evaluation for a design invention is included in the prior art search. The patentability determination for a design patent is focused on the unique ornamental design not being disclosed in the prior art. Back to Design Patent Services.

Note: Prior art patenting searches from Carson Patents include a completed Information Disclosure Statement (IDS). The IDS is a required submission for patent applications. Contact us to conduct a search for your unique inventive design.
