Patentability Search Services
Before an inventor/applicant applies for a patent, it is prudent on his part to assess whether any similar invention already exists in the prior art. Patenting an invention involves investment as well as dedicated effort and time. To ensure that resources are not spent un-gainfully, one should assess the patentability of one’s invention. A patentability assessment would help the inventors realize whether applying for a patent would justify the expenses borne. Patentability search assesses the patentability of an invention by assessing the three basic elements required for seeking patent protection, namely, novelty, non-obviousness, and usefulness. Besides these elements, it also assesses whether there are any similar inventions available in the prior art.
