Why It's Necessary
It may seem like a lot of unnecessary work to do a patent search, but it really is worth the time for you to do it or the money to hire someone else (recommended if you're a novice) to do it for you. You can save a little money; however, by doing the preliminary search yourself. Give this information to your lawyer or whomever you hired to do your patent search.
