Searches – searching for prior art is to read between the lines
Most important when searching for prior art is to read between the lines. When looking for documents that may be relevant for your activities, either commercially or in IP, do not just request search results from your European patent attorney, but also demand to know why the results are relevant and how to best use the information.
Many of Ström & Gulliksson’s clients order technical and novelty search reports. This work is carried out by our patent attorneys, who are highly qualified in their areas of expertise and have access to the high-quality commercial databases. We believe that it is important to not just deliver the documents, but also to explain why they are relevant and advise you on how to interpret them.
To do this, it is essential to be thoroughly familiar with EP practice which enables them to unearth documents that would otherwise lie hidden in the databases.
