Strengthen your Patent Portfolio with a Holistic Design Search
Sagacious IP’s Design Patent Search service focuses on the aesthetic part of an invention and enables you to identify potential infringements or prior arts. It identifies relevant design classifications, term sets and uses them to develop a search strategy that comprehensively covers all the designs in a pre-defined technological domain.
In the aforementioned example, the found prior art resembles the targeted product. However, the gear mechanism differentiates them. Hence, the found prior is not a direct threat for now but this patent must be kept in mind while redesigning the product using the gear mechanism.
