Right-to-Use search


A Right-to-Use searches should be conducted, prior to marketing a new product in Japan, to confirm that the new product does not infringe on an existing patent or potentially infringe on a patent application. If a critical case is found, we can recommend a patent attorney or an attorney at law, for an expert opinion. Fees start at 400,000 yen (about US$4,800), and search periods are generally at least 20 days.
