 More Information: Patent Freedom to Operate Search

Freedom to Operate patent searches (also called Clearance Search or Right to Use Search) identify potential patent barriers to the commercialization of products or technologies. Noro IP will identify published applications and unexpired patents that could possibly indicate a risk of infringing upon an already disclosed invention, product or process. Our search will also help our clients determine if the product or service they are pursuing is in the public domain. We can focus solely on US patents and published documents or we can enlarge our scope to include foreign patent documents.

All Freedom to Operate Searches undergo Noro IP's thorough quality assurance checks before they are delivered to our clients.
