Novelty & Patentability Searches are conducted to determine if a particular invention meets the patentability criteria in terms of novelty and non-obviousness. Such Prior Art Searches are, generally, conducted before incurring any cost into drafting, filing and prosecution of a patent encompassing any invention. These searches are also known as Patent Protectability analysis, Patent Novelty Search, Pre-examination Search, Patentability Search etc.
Our Comprehensive Prior Art Search delivers the most in-depth results of relevant prior art which may postpone your application or affect your patentability. Each patent cited includes a relevancy analysis of why we feel the reference is similar to your invention. The analysis includes citations to specific areas of the patent, usually to the exact column and line number, which makes it very easy for you to identify relevant portions of prior art.

An office action response includes both legal and technical arguments that should coexist harmoniously to rebut the rejections/objections raised in the office action. While legal arguments are based on one’s familiarity with patent laws and manuals, the technical arguments are based on technical understanding of the claimed invention and the cited art. In addition, understanding the examiners contention and appreciation of the claim element and cited art is imperative for drafting a response to office action.
Patent examination is a critical process, and may involve word-by-word scrutiny of patent applications. This makes it absolutely essential to get the patent applications proof-read before filing them with the patent office. On the other side of the coin, various patents are filed without being proof-read. Such patents, once read thoroughly reveal loop holes, or inconsistencies, which may lead to their revocation post grant. IP Wagon provides proof-reading services to cater with both sides of the coin.
