|Is a comprehensive search through US patent applications and enforced and expired US patents. A consultation with a PTO examiner in the relevant art is made as necessary, and the art is searched through relevant US classes with the USPTO examiner assisted search tool [EAST]. Search results are reported with a search summary, field of search, list of databases utilized and 8 to 10 references|
|Is a broad range of classes and subclasses are searched to provide an overview of patented technology similar in the approach contemplated by the client. This offer-underutilized approach combines some of the benefits of a novelty search with alternatives utilized by the industries competitors. The number of references reported is 20-25 unless an expanded overview is requested, and the time range is confined to a 10-20 years to reflect the stare-of-the-art.|
|Is similar to a state-of-the-art but without date range restrictions. A broad range of classes and subclasses are searched to provide an overview of patented technology similar in the approach contemplated by the client. This offer-underutilized approach combines some of the benefits of a novelty search with alternatives utilized by the industries competitors. The number of references reported is 20-25 unless an expanded overview is requested.|
|Is a thorough search of US patents currently in-force for references having claim language that may impede a clients use of a patent, method or apparatus. Cited references may be provided with notations with regard to claims as requested.|
|Is a search through all available resources at the USPTO for US references and literature as well as foreign information that could influence the enforcement of a patent or affect the outcome of a patent in litigation.|
|Is a thorough search of US patents in-force for claim language that could impede a clients use of a patent, method or apparatus. Additionally, particular emphasis is placed on finding expired art common to the clients product.|
