Patent Searching: (Almost) Everything You Need to Know

Original air date: 9.14.21

Join us for an engaging look at patent searches. Rather than a tutorial or “how-to” guide in the mechanics of searching, this program will address important considerations that inform the planning, execution, and validation of all types of patent searches, including patentability, freedom-to-operate, invalidity, landscape, and due diligence searches. Attendees will learn about timing considerations, budgeting and staffing models, export controls, privileges, evidentiary considerations for invalidity/patentability challenges, metrics for evaluating the effectiveness of a search, and more. The program will be useful for those who perform searches themselves and those who outsource their searches to others.

Presented by: Austen Zuege of Westman, Champlin & Koehler
