Validity, Invalidity, Opposition

Any time an organization or an individual applies for a patent, the application is subjected to a patentability search. But, for practical reasons, searches completed by patent office examiners are simply not exhaustive. As a result, patents may be granted despite the existence of prior art that, if found, can be used to deem the patent invalid.

A patent invalidity (validity / opposition) search conducted by TPR can provide powerful strategic leverage when your business’s products, practices, or patented intellectual property is on the line. Whether your company has been threatened or sued for patent infringement, or a competitor has been granted a patent that blocks your use of that technology and is standing in your way, an effective search by TPR’s team of search experts can help clear the legal obstacles in your path.
