A law firm involved in a patent litigation case was working to invalidate a patent for which they required our assistance. The subject patent was filed in South Korea and had family members across various jurisdictions filed in different languages. Search was formulated to cover all documents published in English and languages other than English that could affect the validity of the subject patent. Using search strategies for Korean, Japanese, Chinese, German and French (native language) keywords, Sagacious IP identified two strong references against the subject patent which were used by the law firm in defending their client in a major infringement case.
Foreign language patent search refers to searching patents that have been filed in a language other than English.
It is important to carry out foreign language patent searches to avoid missing out on relevant patents that have been filed in foreign languages such as French, German, Mandarin and Japanese.
One can perform foreign language patent searches using foreign language keywords, translating foreign patents using translation sites such as Google Translate, and using various foreign language patent search databases.
