A great way to begin your innovation journey that provides insight about the current market status and gives right direction for your innovation strategy and investments.
This search is also called clearance search. This kind of search is required to identify obstacles before product commercialization. It is recommended to conduct a freedom to operate (FTO) before beginning the commercialization of your product/technology. This ensures that the desired product can be safely launched in a specific market (countries) without infringing or violating third party intellectual property rights within that particular jurisdiction. FTO search can be conducted at any stage of product development to determine the direction of product/technology development.
To establish an FTO, we conduct a search to locate any granted and alive (in-force) patents. At the end, we get an infringement analysis data that help to take strategic business decisions. This offers risk free product commercialization.
