The kind folks at Origiin IP Solutions recently released a FREE e-book on “Basics of Patent Search”. This is a great initiative to provide access to IP law through the open access model. The e-book highlights the need to perform a thorough patent search, the kinds of searches, and how a good search report can assist in:
- Assessing novelty of the invention;
- Minimising patent infringement risk;
- Formulating IP strategies;
- Enforcement/opposition of patent.
It sets a broad framework for patent search, with additional inputs in the form of a relevant course option provided by Oriigin IP. The e-book can be downloaded for FREE by clicking here. Readers may download the book, and leave feedback with Origiin IP Academy.
