PATENT SEARCH
   An Introduction


                 5
Overview
•   What is Prior Art?
•   What is the Goal of Patent Search?
•   Why perform Patent Search?
•   What is the most cost-effective Patent Search
    for a start-up?
Before applying for a Patent,
you have to do more than a Patent
             Search…
Prior Art

                                     Patents
                   Scientific
                   Journals


                                Publications
                                 (Books,
                                Magazines
                                   etc)




                           Prior Art
= Any information that is made public and related to your invention
Goal of Patent Search

         To find prior patents that
              are similar to your
                   invention
                    and
         hope that there isn’t any.
Why do you need to patent search?




         Save                 Save                 Save
    Embarrassment            Money                 Time

         Better quality patent application
Note that there is no one method of patent search that can ensure
                     that all grounds are covered.
What is the most co t-effective
strategy of Patent Search for a
           start-up?
Here’s what we suggest:
      If nothing similar   If something similar
      to your invention      to your invention




   Own
                   Professional            Invention       Patent
preliminary
                      Search              modification   Application
  search




                   If something similar
                     to your invention
Why not get a professional search
            immediately?
• Cost (needless to explain further)
• Delays the filing of your patent application
  Someone can file for the same/similar
  patent ahead of you
 (In this case, you might want to file for provisional patent application first)

• Extracts first-hand knowledge or inspiration
  from other patents related to your field
When to engage a professional patent search
              immediately?
If your invention
• Is relatively simple
• Is in the Low-tech field
• Isn’t fully developed
• Is marginally useful
• Uses old technology
• Resembles an existing invention
