A design search is conducted to uncover potential prior-art similar to your product’s design. This search focuses primarily on the novel aesthetic feature of your product and identifies patents/registrations which are similar through a world-wide search. Moreover, the search is not limited to patents/registrations alone and can be expanded to products that are available in the public domain.
The search can range from a patentability/prior-art search, FTO or clearance search or Invalidity search depending on the requirement. Also, it can be conducted world-wide or in a limited geography as per client’s preferences.
