What is a Prior Art Search?
It is research to find all the products and inventions similar to an invention that you want to patent. It is done to determine if your idea or invention claim 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 invention (or an obvious precursor) is already written about somewhere in the world. Carson Patents® has experience searching all types and kinds of inventions. Order a patent search deal to start the steps to patent your invention.
What is a Novelty or Patentability Search?
Similar to the prior art search, a novelty or patentability search is a prior art search to find out whether an invention’s claims are new and patentable. This kind of prior art search is usually completed before the inventor files a patent application. A novelty or patentability study is always recommended before applying for patent protection. At Carson Patents® we include a patentability evaluation with our prior art search with our patent search deal. Start the steps to patent for your invention.
What is the difference between a utility patent and a design patent?
A utility patent protects the way an article is used and works (35 U.S.C. 101). A design patent protects the way an article looks (35 U.S.C. 171). You can get both design and utility patents for an article if invention resides both in its utility and ornamental appearance. Utility and design patents afford legally separate protection. But frequently, the utility and design of a product are not easily separable. Products may possess both functional and ornamental characteristics. Contact us.
