Searching - Griffith Hack
Searching and Watching
|Patents provide a vast resource of technical information which can be searched for a variety of reasons. Examples include checking that a new product does not infringe an earlier patent, determining whether an invention is new and patentable, and watching developments in a particular class of technology or a competitor’s activities.|
Griffith Hack’s professional searching staff can conduct a novelty-type search of the international patent literature, searching those relevant patent classes and keywords which describe your invention. These searches typically range within $2500 - $5,000 or higher depending on the complexity of the subject matter. We recommend you discuss with the patent attorney as to the need for such a search.
Before launching a new product it is often prudent to ensure that it will not infringe an earlier patent. This type of search can be expensive, so we suggest you discuss your particular requirements with a patent attorney before deciding to proceed with an infringement search. If you intend to trade overseas you can extend the search to include those overseas countries in which you will trade.
