Prior art searching is a key aspect in patent applications and litigation. Prior art in most systems of patent law,constitutes all information that has been made available to the public in any form before a given date that might be relevant to a patent’s claims of originality. Prior art search incorporates previous patents, published materials like Scientific Papers, Research Papers, Journals, Thesis, Product Catalogs, etc. If an invention has been described in the prior art, a patent on that invention is not valid.
