Patent Search


Before applying for a patent, a thorough check has to be done to verify whether your invention is patentable not. The patent search involves the search of the patent records to check whether there already exists a similar invention. MyAdvo will help you conduct patent search through expert patent attorneys.


Essentials of a Patent


Your invention must meet the following three requirements:

  1. Novelty: The invention must be new.
  2. Inventive step/ non-obviousness: It  must represent an adequate technical advancement.
  3. Industrial application: The invention must be capable of industrial application i.e. it must perform some function of positive benefit to society.

Hence, novelty or newness of the invention is an essential condition for a  patent to be granted. In case your invention is similar to a patented invention, your application will be rejected.
