Some benefits of patent search

Patent search is not mandatory, but it is important to do it before filing a patent application. The search helps determine whether the applicant’s invention is patentable, as well as avoids legal risks such as infringing the intellectual property rights of others. Here are the specific benefits of patent search:

Determination of patent protection

Patent search helps you determine if your invention meets the conditions for patenting. The conditions for being granted a patent include:

  • The invention must be a new technical solution.
  • The invention must be innovative.
  • The invention must be capable of industrial application.

If a search shows that your invention does not meet the above conditions, you may consider adjusting your invention to meet those conditions.

Avoid infringing on the intellectual property rights of others

Patent search helps you determine if your invention duplicates previous patented inventions. If your invention duplicates previous patented inventions, you may be considered infringing someone else’s intellectual property rights.

Increase your chances of getting a patent

Patent Search helps you identify inventions that are related to your invention. Knowing the relevant inventions will help you prepare a more complete and accurate patent application, thereby increasing your chances of being granted a patent.

Save time and money

Patent search helps you determine the patentability of an invention before filing an application. If the search results show that your invention is not patentable, you can avoid unnecessary filing of a patent application, thereby saving time and costs.

In general, patent search is an important procedure that needs to be carried out before filing a patent application. The search helps you determine the protection of your invention, avoid infringing on the intellectual property rights of others, increase your chances of being patented, and save time and costs.
