Search IP: Patents

Review patents already registered to verify your invention is unique and avoid wasting time and money before applying.
Patent databases offer information about the protection of technical inventions globally and in the UAE. The patent landscape provides information about current state-of-the-art in a technology field and helps to clarify the novelty and patentability of a technical idea. A "patent clearance" can also protect you from infringing third-party IP rights and can support both your filing and investment decisions regarding development efforts and market potential. Searching patent data can inform other strategic tasks too, such as competition monitoring, potential partners, technology development trends, and more.
