TECHNOLOGICAL SEARCHES (PATENTS, UTILITY MODELS)

There are two different aspects which establish the need to carry out technological searches.

First phase of development of a new technology:
  • The company must know the whole technical environment in which this is located, the protection of patents which fully or partly overlap with the technology to be developed
  • It must also know about the technologies already developed, which may coincide with the one intended, thus getting to know of problems that have already arisen and avoiding any investments which may be fruitless
  • It allows acquisition of the most appropriate technology for the project being developed
Protection of an invention
  • Knowledge of the technology involved in the invention which is intended to be protected, allowing proper definition of the scope of the object of this invention.
