Prior Art Search Objective Case Study

In basic terms, a patentability search looks for any reference of any type that reveals an invention that is the same or comparable to the one in issue. The problem is that, because obviousness is a non-quantifiable term, resemblance is frequently subjective.

According to the level of mapping of the innovative and creative characteristics of the invention and the invention revealed in the reference, any search is separated into several relevancy criteria such as Relevant, Related, Distantly Related, and Non-relevant.

The goal of a patentability search is to determine whether or not an invention has a probability of being patented, based on the universal criteria of novelty and non-obviousness. The study's scope includes exploring both patent and non-patent literature for references that are relevant and connected to the current invention as previous art.

If the patentability search turns up papers describing innovations that are comparable to the one being searched for, the scope of the invention can be changed for future searches depending on the references found.

A firm named ABC wants to invest in R&D initiatives, and the scientists have submitted ten commercial technologies. For each of the ten initiatives, the corporation runs a patentability search to determine their possibilities of receiving a patent.

Five innovations were discovered to be wholly known as a result of the research, three had comparable inventions divulged, and two were completely new and innovative. The corporation starts R&D on the two innovations right away, and the scientists are told to come up with novel characteristics for the three inventions that would distinguish them from previous art and make them patentable.
