This is the simplest type of patent search, involving searching and retrieving patents or patent applications, based on definitive information, such as document number, title, name of the applicant(s) and/or author(s), international patent classes (IPCs), etc. Due to its simplicity, number search usually takes up to 1-2 hours only.
The main aim of this type of search is to determine whether a concept is patentable over relevant prior art. This search is advantageous to perform as it saves the applicant both time and money before entering filing and examination procedures. It also allows for better drafting of the invention by providing insight on necessary amendments and alterations. This type of search usually takes about 5-10 days.
This type of search is partly similar to the patentability (novelty) search in terms of assessing novelty and non-obviousness, which are the key requirements of patentability. Patent validity search is useful when a patent holder is willing to assess the "strength" of a given patent before its enforcement or when an accused infringer wants to ascertain the validity of an asserted patent. This type of search usually takes about 5-10 days.
This type of search focuses on uncovering existing prior art, similar to the product or technology entering a local market. The main purpose of the FTO search is to avoid infringement suits, resulting in costly litigation proceedings, which may eventually force the company to withdraw the product from the market. It can also be used to uncover pending patent applications that, if eventually issued as patents, might be unintentionally infringed by a given product or technology. This type of search usually takes about 10-15 days.
