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:
Patent search helps you determine if your invention meets the conditions for patenting. The conditions for being granted a patent include:
If a search shows that your invention does not meet the above conditions, you may consider adjusting your invention to meet those conditions.
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.
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.
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.
