Resources for Searching Prior Art – Technical Reports

Searching prior art is one of the most important tasks that we accomplish before moving on to invest our resources into a product launch. A well performed prior art search increases the chances of getting your inventions protected. There are various resources through which prior arts can be collected and technical reports are one among them. With this article, we came up with some important databases that are authorities in the world of patent searching and a patent search professional can try them once for the best outcome.  Searching Prior Art
