Are you interested in finding similar patents? These are the steps:
1. Create a list of terms to describe your invention based on the purpose, composition and usage.
Write down a brief and precise explanation of your invention. Don’t use generic terms such as “device”, “process,” or “system”. Consider synonyms for the terms you picked initially. Next, take note of crucial technical terms, as well as key words.
To help you recognize terms and keywords, you can use the questions below.
- What is the goal of the invention Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
- Is the invention a way of making something or performing some function? Or is it a product or process?
- What is the composition and function of the invention? What is the physical makeup of the invention?
- What is the goal of this invention?
- What are the technical terms and keywords that describe the characteristics of an invention? A technical dictionary will help you find the appropriate phrases.
2. Utilize these terms to locate relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications on the Classification Text Search Tool. If you’re not able to find the right classification to describe your invention, scan through the class Schemas (class schedules) and try again. Consider substituting the words you’re using for describing your invention, if you don’t receive any results from your Classification Text Search with synonyms such as the terms you used in step 1.
3. Go through the CPC Classification Definition for confirmation of the CPC classification you’ve found. The hyperlink to a CPC classification definition will be available when the classification you have selected is a blue square with a “D” on the left. CPC classification definitions can be used to identify the specific classification’s scope, so you are certain to choose the one that is pertinent. Furthermore, these definitions can include some tips for searching and other information which could be helpful for further research.
4. The Patents Full-Text Database and the Image Database allow you to retrieve patent documents that include the CPC classification. By focusing your search on abstracts and drawings that are representative, you can narrow down your search for the most relevant patent publications.
5. Take advantage of this list of most relevant patent publications to study each one in depth for any similarities to your own invention. Pay close attention to the specifications and claims. It is possible to find additional patents through contacting the patent examiner and applicant.
6. Retrieve published patent applications with the CPC classification you picked in Step 3 from the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. You may also employ the same search strategy that you used in Step 4 to narrow down your results to just the most relevant patent applications by looking over the abstracts and drawings on each page. After that, you must review every patent application that has been published with care, paying special attention to the claims, and other drawings.
7. You can search for other US patent publications using keywords in the AppFT and PatFT databases, as well as the classification search of patents that are that are not issued by the United States according to below.

- Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
- Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:

- State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) with machine translation of Chinese patents.
- Other International Intellectual Property Offices with online patent databases include Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan.
- Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.
To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
