Novelty Search


Filing a patent application is a costly procedure, and international applications are particularly time-consuming and expensive. Novelty searches must be made, in advance, to determine whether a technique is novel, and such searches often lead to the discovery of related technologies which were previously not considered. Novelty search results often provide useful material for deciding whether or not to file a patent application.Fees start at 80,000 yen (about US$1,000), and search periods are generally from 5-30 days.
