“DIFFERENCE” between Invalidity search report & Patent validity search report
Patent Validity Search or Patent Invalidity Search are similar to one another except the end results are different. The end results of the PATENT searches are either valid or invalid patent claims. Although, it is presumed that all claims of a patent are valid when granted BUT there is a possibility that the patent office may have allowed claims in error by missing the best prior art while patent searching because of the huge number of patents to be examined.
The time assigned by the patent examiner for every case is not sufficient for conducting prior art searches. In such cases, the invalidity search conducted by a professional patent searcher for the granted patent will uncover better prior art results than the prior art of examined and recorded by the patent examiner at the patent prosecution stage.
