Patent Validation / Invalidation Search

A Patent Validity or Invalidity Search is the process of making an exhaustive Prior Art Search conducted after patent issuance. The former aims to validate the enforceability of a patent’s claims while the latter aims to invalidate one or more claims of a patent. In the event of a patent infringement, proof of invalidity based on prior art is the first line of defence. A diligent validity report on any patent boosts its commercial value in trade negotiations such as licensing and selling of patent.The components of this search are:
