Description of Related Art

The Internet provides a seemingly limitless amount of content, and users of the Internet are constantly combing through this content in an effort to understand various topics, such as current events, medical issues, academic and professionalresearch, evaluation of available products, searching for a service, reviewing a business activity, education, and the like. The Internet is a fantastic source of these kinds of content. The problem is that the Internet does not provide a way to allow users to share their knowledge after they have done their study. There is the need for better strategies and systems that enable users to share their research, study or other actions with others.

How to Search for Patents

  • 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:
  • 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.
