A patentability opinion is an invaluable asset for inventors interested in taking the next step after ordering a Search Report. That is, filing a patent application for their invention. The relevant patent documents that were listed in the Search Report are reviewed and compared with the important features of the invention. The patentability opinion advises as to the likelihood of obtaining a patent based on the results of the Search.
It is important to understand that the patentability opinion relates only to the results of the Search, and not to any other prior art, known or unknown. Therefore, in the event that, based on the results of the Search, the invention appears to be patentable, any initiatives taken should only relate to the process of patenting the invention as you can see from how to patent an idea with InventHelp.
The patentability of the invention does not necessarily mean that other initiatives, such as building a prototype of the invention or performing any commercial activities including marketing the invention, should be taken.
