Novelty search

A novelty search is a search conducted in order to reveal prior art material that might hinder patenting of an innovation.  A novelty search, prior to filling a patent, very often gives valuable input, significantly improving the quality of the filled application.
KIPA can perform novelty searches in house using the same types of advanced search tools used by patent offices.  We also  cooperate with members of our network of professional search partners to provide a wide variety of searches from Freedom to Operate to Validity searches.
