This type of novelty search is conducted to establish if the invention has patentable subject matter, utility or some other novel feature. The search includes all findings on prior art references that might be important to the technology research and includes patent applications and issued patents.
CLEARANCE, FREEDOM TO OPERATE OR RIGHT TO USE SEARCHES
This type of search is used to identify enforceable patents or pending patent applications that might be an impediment to the commercial use of a product, apparatus or service. In addition, the search will uncover patent infringement issues from expired patents that provide safe harbor disclosures.
STATE OF ART OR COLLECTION SEARCHES
State-of-Art or Collection searches are used to establish existing solutions or principles that exist in any given field of art, technological or scientific endeavor, and includes US Patents, US published patent applications, foreign patents and non-patent literature.
INTERNATIONAL PATENTABILITY SEARCH
Same description as the patentability search searching the data bases of the EPO, JPO, China, South Korea and Australia.
VALIDITY SEARCH OR COLLECTION SEARCHES
Validity or Invalidity searches are performed when a patent owner needs to determine the value of the patent seeking allowance. The search identifies prior art references that may be used alone or in combination to contest the validity of the claims in a patent or published patent application, US and foreign patents in addition to non-patent literature and scientific journal and papers.
STATE OF THE ART, LANDSCAPE OR MINING SEARCHES
This type of search is performed to establish and gather related patents in a particular technology area and is used by an entity owning a number of patents so that such patent assets can be rated for licensing purposes and for deciding fee maintenance fee decisions.
