Patentability Search

Validity / Opposition Search


Validity Search

Assert and Defend Your Own IP
Determine Patent Strength and Value
Oppose Third Party IP


This search helps determine the strength of an existing target patent of interest.  It attempts to find prior art that may have been missed when the patent was filed, as well as procedural errors, that may question the target patent's status.
