    PART I: BASIC INFORMATION










    PART II: DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

























    PART III: INVENTOR INFORMATION











    DISCLAIMER:

    This Form is for Engaged Clients, ONLY. If you are not an engaged client, do not use this form and do not submit any confidential data.

    Upon our review, we may discover that we represent a client with conflicting interests or similar inventions.  In this instance, we have an obligation to disengage from representing you prior to commencing work on your matter.

    From time to time, we share received disclosure materials with contracted professionals and engineers we commission to perform an international search or technical drafting work.  These professionals have been carefully vetted and are subject to strict confidentiality and non-disclosure terms.

    Although all of our searches are performed by search professionals, it is virtually impossible for the search to cover all prior art.  Furthermore, even though the search results may lead to a conclusion as to the patentability of your invention (or portions thereof), you have not engaged us to perform a clearance or freedom to operate analysis.  In any event, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is the only entity with authority to determine whether your invention will be patent protected in the United States.  Furthermore, although the search may not reveal an exact result relating to your invention, it is still possible for the USPTO to combine prior inventions under title 35 of the United States Code, Section 103.  Our firm cannot predict the combinations of prior art that may be cited by the USPTO.

    Search methodology includes steps and protocols aimed at a good faith effort to produce a reasonably complete and accurate search report, but such methodology is not without limitation. Searching, by its nature, relies at least in part on the subjective assessment of individual searchers. The databases on which the search party relies are maintained by third parties such as the United States Patent and Trademark Office, foreign governments, and other commercial or public entities (e.g., libraries or Internet database providers) including associated cataloging techniques. Bekiares Eliezer LLP is not responsible for maintaining the accuracy or inclusiveness of these databases, which may be incomplete and/or may contain errors. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee that any search is free of any error or omission. Thus, WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. This search is valid only for the mutually agreed upon scope of the search, and even minor changes in the basis or scope of the search can require a separate and distinct search. Any liability on the part of Bekiares Eliezer LLP arising out of the preparation of this search report is specifically limited to a refund of the search fee paid. Any provided search report is not a legal opinion. Any ranking of cited references, including ranking based on perceived relevance, any cited relevance of a reference, or any analysis provided as part of the search report is for the client’s convenience in reviewing the search results and is not intended to convey an opinion regarding the legal significance of any cited reference.  Any conclusions or opinions provided are provided solely on the basis of the results disclosed in the search report.

    Receipt or use of a search report acts as an acknowledgment of reasonable notice of the above terms, conditions, and limitations. Any questions regarding acceptance of the above terms, conditions, and limitations should be directed to Bekiares Eliezer LLP in writing.
