Before you start the journey of filing a patent, it is critical to confirm the patentability of your invention and navigate through the complex web of existing patents and literature. Our Knockout Search service is a comprehensive pre-filing examination designed to effectively streamline your patent application process, saving valuable time and resources.
Why Our Knockout Search is crucial for Your Innovation:
Patent and Non-Patent Database Exploration: We conduct a thorough search from an array of patent databases and non-patent literature, as well as commercial databases, on a global basis, leaving no stone unturned. We explore patented inventions and published knowledge across a multitude of industries that will serve as a solid foundation for your patent strategy.
Novelty and Uniqueness Assessment: It is important to gauge the novelty of your invention. Our professionals meticulously review your invention against existing patents and publications, whereby they analyse the unique elements of your concept to ensure that it would be set apart in the global intellectual property landscape.
Prior Art Identification: Our search strategies target identical or closely similar “prior art.” Identifying a potential obstacle or roadblock to your patent application early in the process is key. This proactive approach allows you to identify any potential conflicts, enabling you to make an informed decision as to whether to proceed with the filing of your patent.
Detailed Reporting: Our comprehensive report not only lists the closest references we discovered during search, but also maps these references to the key features of your invention. This detailed documentation provides clarity on the patentability of your idea, and demonstrates the most innovative aspects of your invention versus what has already been patented and published.
Our Search Coverage:
Extensive Database Access: We examine global patent databases and access specialized non-patent and commercial databases to ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
Rich Patent and Non-Patent Literature: We search both the patent literature and non-patent literature including scientific journals, technical publications, industry reports and more to ensure a complete view of the state of the art is defined.
