Tutorial for Conducting a Patent Search

USPTO Preliminary Patent Search Tutorial - RF CafeWhile conducting a patent application search for the nCap Technology product which was posted just a few moments ago, it occurred to me that a lot of people have never searched for a patent.

Another scenario that necessitates a patent search is when designing a new product to make sure a patent holder cannot file a n infringement claim against you, and then sue to either prevent its use altogether or to require a royalty payment (you have no control over the $$$ amount). I know an engineer whose company is essentially being held hostage to the tune of several hundreds of dollars per unit shipped because of just such an infringement claim. The USPTO has a well-done video tutorial for first-time patent investigators.. You could potentially save yourself a lot of grief by learning to do patent searches.
