The significance of searches and brainwork carried out in advance cannot be stressed enough when it comes to intellectual property rights, one of your key business resources. A prudent company will thoroughly investigate its IP environment and can thus avoid potentially harmful conflicts with other IP owners. It is also wise to explore the opportunities to protect an idea before making long-term decisions related to intellectual property rights.
Searching may, for example, involve determining the novelty and inventiveness of your idea or identifying the patents and patent applications existing in a new area of business. This information enables you to identify the opportunities and limitations for protecting your intellectual property rights. At the same time, you should also study the IP portfolios of your competitors as their actions may affect your freedom of operation. We will help you read the IPR map!
