One of the very first steps before writing or submitting a patent is searching
for any similar patents already registered. This step is crucial because if any similar
patent exists, the new patent has to be a specific percentage different to be considered a
new invention otherwise it will be rejected and valuable time and money will have been
wasted. In this chapter some recommendations are made to help you search for patents
already registered either for a specific country or internationally.
