How does OCR assess Invention Disclosures?

OCR examines each invention disclosure to review the novelty of the invention, patentability and marketability of potential products or services, relationship to related intellectual property, size and growth potential of the relevant market, amount of time and money required for further development, pre-existing rights associated with the intellectual property (IP), and potential competition from other products/technologies.

This assessment may also include consideration of whether the intellectual property can be the basis for a new business startup.
