Novelty searches

A novelty search helps in evaluating if your idea is already disclosed in prior patent applications, and it gives you a first basis for estimating if the idea is to be pursued in a patent application.

A patent application is considerably more expensive than a novelty search. From a cost perspective it is advisable to perform a novelty search in order to reveal the potential of your invention. At the same time a novelty search gives you an overview on existing rights and already published patent applications. This information may be valuable in creating patent protection.
