Patent Search

A patent search, or patentability search, is a search of existing patents and other publicly-available documents (which is referred to as “prior art”) to locate the closest existing things to your invention. A patent application is scrutinized by the Patent Office by comparing the claimed invention with the prior art, and a patent can be issued if the patent examiner is convinced that an invention is new and not an obvious combination of things in the prior art.
A patent search is often the first thing that is done in the patent process. The purpose of a patent search is to determine how different an invention is from what already exists in the prior art. A patent search will not tell you if your invention infringes someone else’s patent.
The patent search benefits the inventor by identifying the closest prior art so that we can determine both how patentable the invention is, and also what specific parts of the invention are the most different from the prior art. A patent search can also reveal that the inventor’s invention has already been made – even if the invention has never been commercially available for purchase.

Patent Annuity
Provided that the annual renewal fees are duly paid, patents remain in force for the maximum term.Thus, the annuity fees (other known as renewal or maintenance fees) must be paid –generally on an annual basis– to maintain the validity of the patent. Most patent offices collect renewal fees even before a patent is granted. Our own FEEMANGER platform assist you with Chinese patent docketing easily.

Patent Infringement
Patent Infringement is the violation of a patent owner’s rights with respect to some invention. Unless permitted by the patent owner, one commits paten infringement by making, using, offering to sell, or selling something that contains every element of a patented claim or its equivalent while the patent is in effect.

Recordal of Change
Such recordals are necessary whenever a change is made that affects the applicant or holder of the patent, or the rights of authorised third parties, as in the case of a new licence or pledge. If rights are not updated correctly or in time, it could affect the rights of the different stakeholders concerned.
Patent Licensing
Patent licensing is a revocable agreement between a patent owner and a licensee to transfer interest in a patent to the licensee, who can benefit from and enforce the intellectual property rights. The patent owner can license or transfer interest in a patent12. In a patent license, the patent owner gives permission to another entity (the "licensee") to use the patented technology while retaining ownership. The patent license creates income for both the licensee and the licensor through revenue and royalties for the duration of the licensing period.
