A patent refers to a legal permission granted to a person or others for a specific period of time. It encompasses the right regarding the ownership of an invention and restricting others from making, using, selling, and transferring the object in any form without the prior approval of the owner.

There are three pillars on which a patent is granted:

Novelty: The invention must have to be unique and shouldn’trelate to any prior state of work, implying that it must not have been published, presented or disclosed publicly.

Inventiveness: It involves the enhancement of the existing knowledge or state or work that is extremely evident to any individual.

Utility: An invention must be applied to or applicable in industrial process.

While applying for patent registration, the first & foremost step is patent search. In order to establish the eligibility of the object to get patented, patent search is extremely necessary. At Trademark Bazaar, we provide through patent search services to clients in a comprehensive manner.

Patent Search Process :-

There are various strategies or steps that get included in a patent search process.

Patentability search

This patentability search or novelty search is conducted to determine if the invention or product presented meets the novelty aspect. In this case, it is important that all features of claims must be delineated in a single document. This step of search is very much necessary in providing clarity on whether the invention is new or just a progressive step to an old process. It’ll help differentiate the merits of the invention from its counterparts and most prominently, if the invention is ready to be filed for patent.

Prior Art or State of Art search

This search is primarily carried to recognize the technology of invention and its objective. The search is conducted on the databases relevant to or running in line to the technology under examination. Prior art search helps in identifying the resemblance in the current technology used and the technology used in prior art. It will also help the applicant in identifying the research and development areas, prospective problems that may arise, and possible solutions to these problems.

Freedom to Operate (FTO) search

This search is also referred as Right to Use search. Any company going to kick-off or launch its invention conducts the FTO. It does FTO search to validate if the company is not violating any intellectual property rights of others for its own benefit of commerce.

FTO is a detailed search procedure where even the inactive patents as well as the active patents are measured along with the pending and unexpired patents.

Validity/Invalidity search

The validity or invalidity searches are two similar searches except that the results differ. These searches are conducted after the grant of the patent in order to establish the novelty of the patented invention at the time of patent application filing.

Patent Landscape

Patent landscaping helps in getting a summary of the invention with respect to its technology, its industrial domain, competitors, latest trends and research and development in the industry.

It helps to identify the necessity, strength and weakness, strategies, etc., of the technology used, the positioning of the applicant along its competitors in its domain, and different portfolios of existing patents.
