Infringing on a patent – even when it’s done accidentally – can be a costly mistake. In most cases, companies that infringe on existing patents experience a serious set-back in the marketplace, must pay heavy damages or licensing fees, or a combination of the above.
That’s exactly why you need to undertake an effective infringement search before going to market with a new product, process, or service – and TPR’s team of search experts can help.
Our infringement (or freedom-to-operate) search uncovers and reviews the claims of any patents that your business could be in danger of infringing upon. An infringement search covers granted patents and pending patent applications in countries where the use, manufacture, or sale of a product is being considered.
With advanced warning that you may be in danger of patent infringement, you’ll be better able to take steps to modify your company’s strategic plans. You’ll also be in a better position to investigate licensing opportunities, or define a strategy to oppose or defeat any obstructing patents.
