Patent Validation Search

Patent Validation Search is conducted by the assignee to gain the confidence on the Patent that their granted patent is Valid and enforceable. This involves conducting a thorough search related to Patent and Non-Patent Literature. Validity Search focuses to differentiate that the invention is different from all the existing Prior Art and you have brought something new in the market. The main focus of this search is to bring out the strength and prove the validity of the granted patent. Validity Search can be conducted in cases of IP Due Diligence.

Patent Validity search is also done when an organization is acquiring or merging with another company and valuation of a company is in process and Patents forms the major share of the company’s assets. That’s where to reaffirm the validity of the patent, Patent validation search is done. Patent Validation Search removes any chances of invalidation that could arise later on.

A Validity Search can also be conducted before and after of granted patent. This means someone who has recently published a patent application and wants to check strength of the application can also do patent validity search. This helps an inventor to be 100% sure that his invention is novel and can be patented without any issues related to invalidity later on.
