Patentability and Prior Art Searches.

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. 

This type of searching includes all appropriate search types. There are five search types. Firstly, the keyword type. Secondly, the classification type. Thirdly, the structure type. Fourthly, the sequence type. Lastly, the image type. Our expert searchers use all types as appropriate. All searches include keyword and classification types.  

What about a Novelty or Patentability Search?

Similar to the prior art search, this is a search to find out whether an invention is new and patentable. Usually done before the inventor files a patent application. Always recommended before applying for protection. 

As above, these searches include all appropriate search types. There are five search types. Firstly, the keyword type. Secondly, the classification type. Thirdly, the structure type. Fourthly, the sequence type. Lastly, the image type. Our expert searchers use all types as appropriate. All searches include keyword and classification types. 

Important note, proper searching can reduce or eliminate potential rejections and objections. And, as a result, it can reduce costs. This is because, it results in these two things. Firstly, better drafting of applications. And, secondly, thorough preparation for potential office actions. 

Cost Considerations of Prior Art Searches.

Three things influence the cost of searches. Firstly, the number and type (electronic or physical) of data sources we search. Secondly, whether the search requires translation of foreign language source documents. And, thirdly is theses three elements. Firstly, patent type. Secondly, complexity and number of claims. And, thirdly, the intricacy of issues in the claims. All of these things can influence the cost of searching.
