Validity/Invalidity search


An analysis for understanding the strength of patent claims.  A patent invalidity (or patent validity) search can be used to determine the viability of an invalidity defence when facing a patent infringement suit. Invalidity prior art searches are used to invalidate a patent that has been or may be asserted. It also may also be used to pro-actively assess the validity of a patent prior to enforcing it.

  2. Help clear the competitive playing field by invalidating competitors’ patents through post-grant procedures
