Patent landscaping is a process of gaining insight into the patent situation for a specific technology in a country, region or on the global level. It is a starting point for developing IP-based business intelligence.
The process involves two steps: (1) searching patent databases to collect patent data; and (2) analyzing the patent data to derive new information for business use.
You may use patent landscaping in many ways. For example, a patent landscape may show where your competitors are investing their money and effort. The patent landscape may provide a basis for assessing the merit of your invention, or whether your product may infringe patents of others. The patent landscape may also identify less patented areas for developing new business.
We make patent landscaping easy for you so that you can integrate it into R & D or other business initiatives. In addition, we collaborate with you to define the scope of work to be commensurate with the underlying business objectives. This allows for more focused investigations, which in turn lead to concrete benefits at reduced cost.
