A Patent is a form of protection that provides a person or legal entity with exclusive rights for making, using or selling a concept or invention and excludes others from doing the same for 20 years from the date of filing. Owning a patent gives you the right to stop someone else from making, using or selling your invention without your permission for a term of 20 years from the date of filing i.e. the duration of the patent. There are basically three patentable criteria for an invention. The invention should be novel, should possess an inventive step and must have a commercial utility. A patent is a monopoly right given to inventors to make money out of there patented invention. A patent can also be licensed out, licensed in or sold, and in return monetary benefits can be gained. A patent is a form of an intellectual property. A patent becomes an asset of a person or an entity which in the times of crisis can be used as a tool to withstand the situation by selling its IP portfolio. Only an inventor may apply for a patent on his or her idea. If two or more people participate in the creation of an invention, the law requires that all participants apply for a patent as joint inventors.

Freedom to operate is performed country wise or territory wise, since IP rights are specific to different jurisdictions, country or territory.

An invalidity search is conducted to uncover patents or other published prior arts that may render a granted patent invalid. A Patent Validity Search or Patent Invalidity Search is an exhaustive Prior Art Search conducted after a patent is issued. This patent service is availed only if a company or an organization desire to stop their competitors and monopolize the market.
The main purpose of the search is either to validate the enforceability of a patent’s claims or to invalidate one or more claims of a patent, respectively. These two searches are identical except for the desired outcome i.e. valid or invalid patent claims, of the search. Although, each claim of a patent is presumed to be valid when granted, it is possible that the Patent Office may have allowed claims in error by overlooking the best prior art at least because of the limited time and resources allotted to a patent Examiner for conducting prior art searches. In such instances, the invalidity search conducted for the patent in question will uncover better prior art than the prior art of record uncovered earlier by the patent examiner. The result of an invalidity search is to identify prior art, published before the earliest priority date of the target patent, with the goal of finding specifications that read on the claims of the target patent. We are experienced in conducting invalidity searches in all domains. ANS Team has conducted over a dozen invalidity searches and generated highly effective report for Indian as well as overseas clients/attorneys.
