A patent search is a search of patented inventions that are already in use. A patent search can help determine if an invention has a patent, so that patent infringement can be avoided. A patent search will be able to determine types of situations such as when an invention very similar to a patented invention, but with differences in color and size and even provide graphic information.
Running a patent search can be useful in eliminating future patent infringement cases. Without a patent search, an inventor could pay lots of money for a patent application and invest in projects and marketing of the product, possibly finding out later that a patent for a similar or identical product exits.
