Our aim is to maximize your business potential by exploring the value of your patents and identifying additional patent licensing opportunities. Before you take that critical decision about monetizing patents, we help you understand the potential of that patent. It may be worthwhile to license a patent instead of buying or selling it. We leverage our experience in corporate strategy planning and technology consulting, to carefully analyze your portfolio and recognize potential technologies or patents, where profits can be maximized.
Locating illegal use of your patented invention
Infringement search identifies third-party products that read onto your strongest patents. We look out for potential infringers or companies operating in the similar technology area and analyze their products w.r.t. the claims of your patent. We dig deep into documents such as whitepapers, product datasheets, standards, videos etc., to identify relevant products/standards and prepare claim charts as evidence for infringement.
An unauthorized use of someone’s property without seeking his/her permission is known as infringement.
The owner or registered holder who has the right over invention/mark can sue for infringement case.
To know about who is using your mark or similar mark you should need to conduct searches over databases. For this you must approach Researcher/Analyst who can conduct IP search for your mark/invention/work.
Yes, there are companies with which you can obtain insurance against the risk of patent infringement which may help fund the costs of litigation and if applicable, the damages that must be paid out.
Costs include court filing fees and related litigation expenses. In addition to infringement damages, a patent owner may stop the infringer from continuing to produce infringing products
Detailed claim charts to cite evidence for infringement
We help you make that important decision about patent licensing, acquisition or sale, by carefully analyzing the patent claims, followed by a detailed analysis of relevant products for infringement. We prepare detailed Evidence of Use (EoU) claim charts, with element to element mapping, to indicate how each element of the patent claim reads onto the product features. Additionally, we also analyze technology standards to include patent-to-standard mapping. Our experts have worked on different standards like IEEE 802, 3GPP, LTE etc.

Evidence of Use (EoU) chart is used to define the extent a claim ‘reads onto’ a product, process, and or standard. Detailed evidence of use charts help in licensing agreements, pre-litigation research, and patent transaction opportunities.
Yes. Whatever your intellectual property management goals may be (defensive, commercialization, or assertion), routine monitoring of the market for potential infringement, and maintaining a set of infringement-indicative claim charts will serve to increase the marketability and transaction probability of your patent portfolio. The first question that most buy-side parties will ask is: “do your patent assets have claim charts/evidence of use?
Opportunities for patent monetization
Opportunities for patent licensing lie not only in tracking companies that are illegally selling your patented technology, but also in identifying companies that are operating in a similar technology domain. Such companies that are not already infringing, might be interested in buying or licensing your patents.
Our technology experts will carefully analyze your portfolio and evaluate different technologies to recognize patents worth licensing. These could be underperforming patents or patents that are not aligned to your core-technologies. Accordingly, we locate potential licensee best suited for driving negotiations.
We work with you to strategize patent acquisitions or cross licensing opportunities. We will evaluate your business needs and the growth of the technology of interest to identify technologies/patents best fit for strengthening your existing portfolio. Multiple parameters are used to estimate the value or worth of a patent.
