More About Prior-Art Search

Prior-Art search is a prior-art study conducted to determine if a patent might be granted on an invention by a patent office. In prior-art search, a qualified prior-art searcher studies all published documents (including patents, scientific literatures, conference proceedings, blogs, etc) in the domain of invention (ideally irrespective of country/language they are published in).

Based on this study of prior art, the prior-art searcher prepares a prior-art search report summarizing if the given invention is patentable (i.e., whether it is novel and non-obvious compared to anything already known to human kind) and/or if some modification needs to be made to the invention/scope of patent for it to become potentially patentable.

Apart from giving a general background and state-of-the-art about the invention’s domain, a prior-art search report actually helps an inventor/company make an informed strategy about patenting and product launch saving them lot of resources and money. Especially because:

  1. If prior-art search is conducted properly and timely, it helps you determine if a patent should be filed. If answer is yes, the prior-art search report helps you determine how broad a protection can be sought, if no, then pro-active decisions can be taken on filing or amending claims. In both the case, you either save time and money on patenting process and/or significantly reduce the expenditure on patent office actions
  2. Filing a patent application does not guarantee patent grant and if an invention is very critical for market offering and if company/inventor are betting on exclusivity via patents, a prior-art search helps them determine in timely manner whether they will get such an exclusivity and they can accordingly decide to invest further in that research/ offering.
