At the stage of creating a new object of intellectual property - a design embodied in an industrial design, there are several important points, such as preliminary verification and patent search.
When the applicant only has a design, it is very important to correctly assess the patentability of the future industrial design in which the design will be embodied.
An important aspect of the preliminary check is the competent selection of the declared object. In some cases, at this stage, it is determined whether the new object will be protected as an industrial design.
Once the claimed subject matter has been identified, the most important aspect of design verification can begin - patent search.
Before filing an application, at the stage of its preparation, it is necessary to conduct a patent search, which will allow assessing the chances of patenting an industrial design, and competently compiling all application materials.
For an industrial design, novelty and originality are assessed during the search.
Patent search is a complex analytical process that includes a comparative analysis of the claimed design with the already known graphic solutions from the prior art.
Patent search is carried out by the main keywords of the claimed object in special search patent databases, as well as in non-patent information sources, and on the Internet.
Search results are very important because they allow you to establish the patentability of an item and assess the chances of its registration.
