What is a patent search and why is it so important?
Making informed decisions
Selling the “benefit” of your product idea
Helping you file a well written provisional patent application.
Conducting a patent search will also help you file a much better provisional patent application.
Having this type of information in advance can help you overcome any future office actions if you end up deciding to file a non-provisional patent application.
In our opinion, a professional patent search is critical for you to get a patent issued on your product idea.
Who conducts the patent search?
We believe that doing a patent search correctly means utilizing a professional patent searcher. This way, there’s no conflict of interest, unlike working with a Patent Attorney or Patent Agent.
We also believe it’s important to do a worldwide Search. Doing a United States search is not enough.
It is important to understand that what a patent search uncovers can never guarantee with certainty that your invention will or will not be approved by the USPTO.
