Patent Searching: An indispensable tool for inventors

Patent Searching Made Easy explains how to assess the novelty of an idea and conduct the most effective patent searches at little or no cost.


There's no sense paying thousands of dollars to file a patent application if someone else has beaten you to the Patent and Trademark Office. Avoid expensive patent-searching fees (and common search-related pitfalls) with this step-by-step guide that explains the process, online and off.


Patent Searching Made Easy shows you how to:


  • quickly research an idea to see whether anyone has already patented it
  • come up with the best keywords to describe your invention and target your search
  • classify your invention based on the U.S. Patent Classification System
  • figure out whether your idea is new enough to qualify for a patent
  • verify the patent status of ideas submitted to you (if you're a developer), and
  • use the latest federal and international search-related resources.
