Freedom to operate (FTO) / Infringement
For FTO/infringement purposes the work done is even more in-depth and extensive. Two searches are made by two different searchers in order to reach a higher degree of reliability.
Applicant’s searches are also performed in the name of the major players of the field to limit the risk of infringing their IPRs as much as possible.
We consider the claims and the legal status of the patents retrieved with regard to a particular territory of interest.
