Freedom-to-operate (FTO) study

In today’s technology landscape, patent holders are asserting their patents at a significant rate. FTO study helps in minimizing chances of patent litigation.

FTO study is focused on identifying any existing patents and patent claims that may affect product development and business. Accordingly, the FTO search will help you avoid any infringement claims later on. Moreover, the identified patents will help in designing around the existing patents to avoid patent infringement later on.

• For clearing products or inventions for launch
• For assessing patent infringement risk assessments
• For finding licensing needs
• For guiding product development efforts

When to conduct
FTO search should be performed before a product is launched or during product development. FTO search is part of the due-diligence for the product launch process.
