You cannot rely solely upon the patent assignment database of the USPTO alone. Frequently, separate assignment documents are not recorded for CIP or divisional applications. Any assignment filed for the parent application may provide the required notice of ownership. So, be sure to check for assignment records directly with the USPTO. The USPTO records for older patents that were manually processed by USPTO employees should always be checked for accuracy.Be sure also to note that members of a patent family may also have different assignees. Also, assignment information usually does not reflect license information, orparticularly exclusive licensee identification which may be important for in many situations. And, for purposes of completeness, be sure to read the recorded assignment for all conditions of the assignment

Hi,

I have visited your blog and have found it helpful, mostly about the information about patent invalidation searches. Invalidation search is done to identify documents or prior use that may reduce the claim scope for one or more claims of a granted patent or to invalidate a granted patent.
Thanks for the great post, very helpful information here.
