Freedom To Operate
Are you sure your products are not infringing the patent rights of others?
FTO analyses provides an overview of existing patent rights
Are you sure, your products are not infringing the patent rights of others? You need to know this, before you put your product on the market – in fact before you even start producing or advertising your product.
A freedom-to-operate (FTO) analysis can provide an overview of existing patent rights in your technical field and be of assistance to you before making any major investment decisions.
An FTO analysis is crucial before launching a new product, as it can determine if you can actually produce and sell your product or use a specific method without infringing others’ rights.
It may also be relevant when selling or licensing a patent, as buyers and licensees often require assurance that the licensed product does not infringe others’ rights. Additionally, conducting an FTO analysis before filing a new patent application can be beneficial.
