From the Inside Flap:

Patent searches before prosecution help improve the defensibility of the future patent, and can dissuade the inventor from prosecuting at all. In our litigious society, the pre-examination preparation by an inventor, patent attorney, agent, or searcher can save the patent owner much time and money later on. But while quality patent searching is vital to intellectual property law, there are very few resources available on how an intellectual property professional should conduct a patent search. Patent Searching: Tools & Techniques provides a practical guide to the art and science of this task, along with essential information on patent law, patent search theory, and practice.

Editor David Hunt and his team of contributors at Landon IP, Inc.—one of the largest privately held patent search, analysis, and consulting firms in the United States—have drawn on their experience working for approximately 2,000 companies and 1,000 IP law firms to create an indispensable reference to patent searching procedures and techniques. They detail key principles and approaches that will work regardless of the specific tools you use, covering everything from the basic types of patent searches (including patentability, validity, infringement, clearance, state-of-the-art, and patent landscape) to the mechanics of searching, patent analysis, reporting search results, and more.

While the Internet has made simple searching easy, the volume of information available has in many ways made it less focused and harder to interpret findings. Patent Searching: Tools & Techniques helps professionals avoid information overload and identify just the information they need. It outlines criteria on how to select the most appropriate search tools and even provide current information on the major databases available. And with an abundance of illustrative tables, charts, and figures, this book makes complex material easy to read and understand.

Whether you're a patent examiner, patent attorney, commercial patent searcher, patent liaison, IP librarian, law professor, or competitive intelligence analyst, you'll find Patent Searching: Tools & Techniques to be just the guide you have been waiting for, with a range of approaches to patent searching that will be useful to you regardless of your technical expertise or role in the intellectual property community.
