|Patentability or Novelty
|We search the patent and technical literature
in order to help the individual or company (or their attorney) determine if the
new idea is truly novel.
| Infringement search
|We thoroughly and comprehensively search the
patent literature to assist in determining if the new or existing product will
infringe on existing patents. This should routinely be done prior to a new
product launch. We also examine recently issued patents to determine if they
potentially infringe on your patent.
| Validity Search
|If actual or potential infringement is of
concern, a validity search should be conducted. Prior art may invalidate an
existing patent removing the need to license the technology or pay royalties.
When you work with Martin Goffman Associates you
will receive thoroughly researched information, a personal consultation arranged
at your convenience at both the beginning and final stages of the project, and
you will benefit from our comprehensive and professional services.
