Your new invention won’t meet the legal standard of novelty if it’s already been described in print or public discourse. A product or process is only patentable if it’s entirely new - or if it’s a non-obvious variation of what already exists.
A patentability or novelty search conducted by our team will help you know if your idea is new, original, and ultimately patentable. We’ll tailor a search approach that meets your unique needs and budget, and scour the relevant patent and non-patent literature necessary from around the world to shed light on the novelty of your idea.
The benefits of an effective patentability search by TPR can be significant – giving you both insight into the direction of a potentially patentable invention, as well as preventing expenditures on additional research and legal fees in support of patent filings should the idea or technologies appear non-patentable.
