Patent Search

Indian Patent Search - Overview

A patent allows the owner to prevent anyone else from constructing, using, having to import, or selling their Invention without their permission. Before providing a patent a complete survey is conducted in order to make sure that the invented procedure or process is unique. This involves analyzing the entire database of the nation's patent authority for a specific project that is similar to the applicant's discovery.

To sum it up, a patentability search is an investigation of the patent database to see if there are any patent applications that are similar or identical to the invention being patented. A patent search can be conducted to improve one's chances of obtaining a patent registration or to learn about new inventions that are patentable.
