Learn how to conduct FTO searches

Freedom to operate searches are an essential part of product development, but many companies leave them until too late in the development cycle, wasting time and money.

While legal professionals play a valuable role in providing FTO opinions, R&D and IP teams can help to expedite these searches by incorporating some prior art searching into their workflows.

This session will take a look at some of the standard workflows one might use to get this important work completed. 

You will learn:

  • What is FTO searching? 
  • When should you conduct an FTO search? 
  • What happens when you find a related patent?
