What is Infringement search?

A patent infringement search occurs when another company begins using, selling, or manufacturing a patented product without the patent owner’s consent or license. Therefore, the sale or manufacture of an unexpired patented invention in a patent-protected territory without obtaining a license from the patentee constitutes a patent infringement investigation and can be legally challenged. The output of Patent Infringement Search comes in the form of Evidence Of Use (EOU) charts or claim charts, which map potentially infringing product features to the claim elements of the covered patent.

Who needs Infringement search?

Patent infringement occurs when a product or technology reads the full scope of a patent’s claims. If the product or technology is sold, manufactured, or used without the patent owner’s consent or knowledge, the patent owner has the right to take action against the person or company concerned. This gives the patent holder exclusive rights to their invention and allows them to license the manufacture and sale of the patented product.
