Freedom to Operate
To ensure you product launch is smooth and your product doesn’t face any patent licensing issues in future, FTO should be an essential part product development. We generally advise our clients to conduct FTO search early in the product life cycle, possibly when product features are being finalized. FTO search helps determine whether marketing a product or process infringes a valid patent. A targeted search to discover active patents is performed for given market(s)/ jurisdiction(s) to identify potentially risks/opportunity. Our FTO reports can help minimize risk of patent-litigation, maximize competitive strength, meet investor expectations prior to funding, or identify potential product/patent acquisition target.
