Prior Art search:
Most of our patent and non-patent literature searches are for validity (invalidity). We also search for right-to-use, patentability, state-of-the-art, and infringement. Our prior art searches are performed by native searchers. We don't believe it is possible to perform a thorough Asian patent search using English abstract or machine translation, although we know some firms do that.
