The search can be used in your further work to map your possibilities.
Before launching a new product, it is useful to know if you can manufacture and sell it without infringing the rights of others. A Clearance Search can be used as an indicator of whether or not this is the case. If the search shows that other rights already exist, you have a better position to make a risk assessment and to secure yourself against unnecessary costs for production and any future lawsuits.
Do you suspect that the validity of an existing foreign patent can be questioned, or that a foreign patent application should not lead to a patent? A Validity Search generates documents that can be used to challenge the validity of a patent or an application. We can also examine the validity of utility models.
