There are many reasons users may want to search existing patents and trademarks. They may want to search to make sure no one else has already patented their invention or trademarked a logo similar to theirs. They may want a complete copy of the drawings and specifications of something currently protected under a patent. They may also wish to search in order to find out what type of research is being done by certain companies or individual inventors.
