Our invalidity/validity searching can give you not only the references that matter but the key data and analysis that can make all the difference in a re-exam. Search includes current and expired US, EP and WIPO Patents and published applications. We list secondary references showing at least one of the limitations of the independent claim.

Application Filling in India

Provisional applications

To get the earliest possible priority date on your invention, you can file a provisional application. As a general rule, the priority date for your invention is the date on which you first filed a patent application that described your invention in detail.

A provisional application doesn't give you patent protection on its own (there are no 'provisional patents'), but it's useful in establishing an early priority date if you operate in a highly competitive industry where constant innovation requires you to get the jump on competitors.

A provisional application also gives you time to determine whether your invention is worthy of further time, money and effort associated with filing a complete application for a patent. It is also less expensive to file a provisional application than a standard complete application.

Ordinary Patent Application (Complete Specification)

Every specification, whether provisional or complete, shall describe the invention and shall begin with a title sufficiently indicating the subject matter to which the invention relates. Every specification shall fully and completely describe the invention and its operation or use and the method by which it is to be performed. Every specification, whether provisional or complete, shall be made in Form 2.

Application for Patent of Addition

When the applicant is of the view that he has come across an invention which is a slight modification of the invention for which he has already applied for/or has patent, the applicant can move for a patent for addition. The condition for application of patent of addition is that the new application should not involve any inventive step.
