Prior-Art Search

Prior-Art Search

  • Search to determine whether any prior art patents or other publications exist that would bar issuance of a valid patent
  • Data sources include patent and non-patent literature
  • Information for search is derived from proposed draft patent application
  • Results are used to draft claims that avoid the prior art and to focus the application on the novel and non-obvious features of the invention
