Sammanfattning

The purpose of the article is to provide the analyst with practical patent search methods for gathering relevant patent documents in order to perform some of the steps outlined in the table above. More specifically, the text will address how to gather patent documents for patentability and FTO searches. First, patentability searches are conducted to gather all relevant prior art in order to understand the different patenting opportunities – mainly in relation to the novelty, non-obviousness and utility criteria . It is important to note that patentability searches are not limited to patent documentation. Any relevant material made public, either in patent documents or in other formats, could have an impact on the patentability of a technology. This guide is only limited to patentability search among other patent documents. Second, FTO searches focuses on what other patents claim in order to see (1) if the project infringes other patents, (2) if the project is expected to infringe other patents in the future, or (3) if patents in the project are covered by other patents. Title claim, background/foreground analysis, patent due diligence and claim chart analysis are thus outside the scope of the article, but should still be considered to be important steps in the early-stage project verification.
