Transcript of "Patent Search"

  1. 1. Patent Search By Nitin Nair
  2. 2. Patent Search  Performed to uncover related references  May be patent/patent applications, technical papers, articles or any source open to the public
  3. 3. Types of searches  Patentability Analysis  Freedom to Operate Analysis  Landscape Analysis  Infringement Analysis  Invalidity Search
  4. 4. Patentability Analysis  To understand the prior arts that may affect the chance of obtaining a patent for an invention and assist in preparing the draft  Novelty  Non-obviousness
  5. 5. Landscape Analysis  To understand the technology and areas of research
  6. 6. Infringement Analysis  A check if a product infringes on a patent
  7. 7. FTO Analysis  A check if a product/process may be practiced in a jurisdiction
  8. 8. Invalidity Analysis  Searching for prior art which will invalidate a patent
  9. 9. Search Databases  Free databases  USPTO, Espacenet, Google Patents  Paid databases  Delphion, Micropatent, Thomson Scientific, Questel
  10. 10. Search methodologies  Keyword Searches  Classification based searches
  11. 11. Keyword Searches  Detailed as possible  Use as many synonyms/variations in terminology as possible  Boolean operators
  12. 12. Keyword Searches - Example  A flexible cylindrical length of plastic, where both ends of the cylinder are open. The diameter of the cylinder may be very small, as compared to the height of the cylinder. The plastic may be of a single colour or may have a design on the outer surface.
  13. 13.  Drawbacks  Inconsistent terminologies  Non-English patent documents Keyword Searches

Classification based searches  USPTO 7 step strategy  Discover keywords  Find potential classes using classification index  Verify classes using classification schedule  Verify scope use class definitions  Search for patents in the identified classes  Retrieve relevant patents  Check other sources
  17. 17. Classification based searches  USPTO 7 step strategy  Discover keywords  Find potential classes from relevant patents identified using the keywords  Verify classes using classification schedule  Verify scope using class definitions  Search for patents in the identified classes  Retrieve relevant patents  Check other sources
