Ideally this is where it should all begin, in that in order to know what 'prior art' already exists in your particular
field of technology, an applicant or inventor must request a pre-filing patent search before developing their
invention concept any further.
The search may uncover material that anticipates the invention in question and that could pose a potential obstacle to the subsequent Patent application's success. Its main importance is that it prevents one incurring avoidable expenses if someone has already invented their invention, or something embodying an essential aspect of it is already present in the public domain.
