In the case of "essential patents" that are indispensable for developing certain types of products or for meeting certain technical standards, the risks of being accused of infringement are extremely high. Therefore, many companies, prior to launching a new product, and often even prior to initiating a new line of research that may lead to the development of a new product, seek to minimize the risk of infringement by securing their "Freedom To Operate" (FTO). FTO Search helps identify potential patent barriers to commercializing your products or technologies. This due diligence process examines claims language of third-party, in-force patents as a means of assessing your risk of potential infringement.
