Why - Search Status

Inventions must be new - old ideas are not patentable. The extent to which you can document the novelty of your invention is an important consideration in its evaluation. Documentation of novelty requires a careful search of the patent and non-patent literature. The results of such searches must be disclosed to patent offices. You may be surprised at what others have discovered.
