Search? Before a patent is filed it is sensible to do a search of the prior art. The USPTO does not require an inventor to search the prior art prior to filing for a patent; however, it is a sensible precaution to avoid spending all the time and money trying to patent something that already exists. The USPTO does require the inventor to disclose everything he or she knows about the prior art related to his or her invention.
