Novelty search, patentability


Patents protect not only your own product development but the business in general as well. Having your invention patented keeps you a step ahead of your competitors. On the other hand, the patents of the competitors may prevent you from entering a desired market.

Service steps


Defining the case

Research and analysis


Meeting, discussing further actions

Before drafting a patent application, conducting a novelty search for the invention is recommended. The main purpose of the search is to find out whether the innovation is novel and whether it involves an inventive step. Further, the results of the search help to analyse the state of the art upon which the invention is based.

Should you need to find out whether there is protection available for patenting your business or whether your competitors have patented similar inventions, a novelty search is a tool for solving these matters. Also, if need be, an invention may be limited more closely by subjecting it to a novelty search.
