AlaCarte™ Patent Services
Prices for searches depend on the number of patents we search . Search Prices range from $800-$2000 or more for complete searches
Prior Art Searches
See this link for details. Proposals are prepared for all searches. Since human readers read the patents, the more we read the more expensive the search. Proposals are free except there is a profiling charge (see below). If you accept a patent portfolio we make for you from a profile and then don’t buy a search.

Charged hourly (See Prepaid Accounts)
If we share with you the information we find doing a patent search profile and you later decide to not proceed with the search owing to your evaluation of the materials we found, you will agree to pay us the cost of the profile. This charge will not be made if you order a full patent search of which the profile is a part and its cost is included.
If you do not agree to pay a profiling charge, we can still do the profile but we will not share with you what we find in in building the profile. In particular we will not share portfolios of relevant patents we might find.
If you do pay the profile charge, we will share with you all the relevant documents we find in preparing the profile including key patents whether or not you order a full search.

*After 2 years inactivity, remaining balances in prepaid accounts are converted into store credits in hours. After 5 years of inactivity, any remaining account balances are credited to Business Metamorphosis LLC. Prepaid accounts are not refundable.
For customers who aren’t sure exactly what they need or need a variety of BML products, a Prepaid account is created which can be drawn upon to pay for any BML service. These Prepaid accounts can be extended at the same rates if desired. All disbursements from these accounts are only on authorization of the client.
Terms and Conditions
Business Metamorphosis LLC offers three types of terms and conditions. Other terms may be negotiated.
Prepaid Retainer Accounts are divided into items which are focused on specific tasks requested by the client. BML will estimate the time required for each work block and thus its price. When BML and a client agree on the definition of a work block and its schedule, BML will charge the clients retainer on completion of the work block.
