  • To successfully prosecute patents, there has to be in place a thorough patent investigation and a detailed analysis of relevant state of the art.

That is why at LogicizeResearch we have developed a global patent and technical literature search that enables us to go the extra mile and dig deeper than other search providers.

  • Knock-out patentability search is carried out to identify new inventions from databases within the set timeline. Such searches are performed before an investment is made in drafting and filing a patent. The knock-out search is usually preferred by inventors to save costs on assessing the patentability of the invention. Companies use knock-out search to cut down the volume of invention disclosures reaching a higher level.

    We have vast experience when it comes to knock-out searches that identify prior art references that focus on the novelty aspect of the invention. The search is performed using commercial patent databases and is limited to three major filing jurisdictions, i.e. US, EP and WIPO.

  • An infringement search is conducted mainly for two reasons:

    • To verify whether an infringement has been done on an unexpired patent in the country where a product or process is planned to be commercialized
    • To establish that there is no risk of infringement done on another holder’s unexpired patent when you make, use, or market your innovation.
  • With Infringement and Clearance Searches, your new or planned product can be launched into the market without due consideration for litigation from patent holders. But infringement search is clearly limited to enforceable patents only in a country where the product would be marketed. For Clearance Search, a broader perspective comes into play with the aim to determine where the product could be marketed legally.
