Unearthing Gold Standard Patents:

Do you know what are gold standard patents? More than 90% of the innovative companies don’t know the real value of their patent portfolio because they dont know their gold standard patents (GSPs). 

Imagine owning 100s of patents in the portfolio without knowing your Gold Standard Patents (GSPs) that can generate revenue for your company. An expert driven mining of Gold Standard Patents from your patent portfolio would fetch you following benefits:

Why Expert-Driven Mining of Gold Standard Patents?

Unearthing Gold Standard Patents

  1. Generating additional revenue stream through licensing
  2. Using the best assets in defensive strategies
  3. Selling assets with high valuation that might not be aligned with the current business focus
  4. Portfolio Maintenance Cost optimization
  5. The IP division also starts generating revenue for the company
Our Approach

Learn How We Do it

Our expert driven mining of Gold Standard Patents is done through exhaustive analysis of each patent in the portfolio through a combination of automated and manual analysis. We analyze each patent against multiple qualitative and quantitative parameters such as claim enforceability, infringement detectability, market relevance, number of independent claims, number of family patents, number of forward citations etc. A unique ranking system provides score against each evaluated parameter, followed by an overall score that ensure the identification of GSPs in your portfolio and also the potential targets to watch out for licensing. 

Fixing the LEAKING Revenue Stream

Do you also sometimes feel that you are spending way too much than you are making from your patent portfolio? Do you get a push back on the IP budget in your board meetings?

Our Unique Strategy Developed Over Decade Supporting Clients in Identifying The Potential Infringers and Fixing the Leaking Revenue Stream

Our expert driven step by step procedure for infringement analysis ensures each patent is evaluated  on claim enforceability and its market relevance. Followed by above steps a deep tech research is performed to identify infringement evidence for patents that are highly enforceable and have high market relevance. The infringement evidence mining is perdormed by a detailed research on diverse set of platforms as mentioned below:

  1. Product literature reviews
  2. Standards analysis
  3. Product testing
  4. Source code reviews
  5. Reverse engineering

Courts don’t like your Claim Charts

Are you able to get the court ready claim charts regularly? Are you sure the next claim chart you get done will be used as it is in the US courts?

Can your claim chart withstand the litmus test of litigation? Is claim construction still bothering you?

Well, it’s not surprising because the court battles are won much before they actually reach the courts. Surprised? The secret lies in the critical research and expertise that’s required in pre-lit work. Here are the benefits of getting EOUs/Claim charts prepared by ONE team with deep tech expertise and Legal prudence:

High Definition litigation grade claim charts

Exhaustive evidence mining from dedicated team of experts

Claim Construction that wins you the case

Analyzing claim-specification mapping chart for enablement

Countering non-infringement arguments 

Our Approach

The Way We Do It

Our ONE team strategy ensures that our HD claim charts would withstand the litmus test of litigation. We perform exhaustive evidence mining as per the technology under consideration and court requirements using following means (as applicable):

  1. Product literature reviews
  2. Standards analysis
  3. Product testing
  4. Source code reviews
  5. Reverse engineering

With this team and approach we have generated millions of dollars in jury verdicts and settlements for our multiple clients.

Paying royalties to BAD Patents

Do you know more than 60% of patents asserted have bad claims? Have you also settled on an infringement case without checking the validity of the claims?

Guess what, you could save thousands of dollars just by checking the validity of claims, because the licensing offer you have received might be riding on claims that lack novelty? 

Are you also frustrated because you got some prior art results that appeared nailed the novelty but actually turned out  not to be the case?

You might have got some  prior art results that appear to kill novelty but failed the ultimate test despite being presented in a detailed fancy report?  How often do you get fancy prior art search reports with not so interesting results? Well, ultimately results matter and we believe in a process that results in finding ‘killer arts’.

Here are the benefits of ONE team that leads on technology and legal front with a critical eye on every aspect of the case to find the ‘killer arts’:

Critical analysis on novelty and prosecution history of the patent

Review of the claims by technology experts

A detailed reporting of results that is passed through tech and legal lens

Our Approach

The Way We Do It

Our ONE team performs detailed understanding of the patent under consideration, executes the project in a phased manner and also documents the outcomes of every stage. These individual outcomes/results eventually shape a detailed report that is further used in court proceedings. Below mentioned are steps followed for invalidation searches:

  1. Determining Novelty, specification support and prosecution history analysis for NOA (notice of allowance).
  2. Identifying claims to be focussed upon
  3. Preparing search strategies through combination of keywords, classes, assignees on paid patent databases that provide widest geographical coverage of patent literature.
  4. Performing non patent literature searches on journals and research publishing platforms
  5. Shortlisting the results including novelty of the subject patent
  6. Preparing a detailed report covering mapping of the results

Casting DIAMONDs from SEP Portfolios

Do you know the difference between an actual SEP and a declared SEP? Are you also feeling lost in complex standard specification while analysing your declared SEPs for actual relevance?

What if i say that some organizations are genuine SEP leaders while others are not because most of the organization dont know their DIAMOND class assets in SEP portfolio? 

Well not all declared patents are actual SEPs and true leaders know the DIAMONDS from their SEP portfolios that shine forever in licensing and litigation campaigns. Our vast experience and success in various SEP litigations/licensing can be your trump card, as we understand the standards and patents like no one else. We have expertise in:

Finding standard specifications that are actually applicable to patents

Understanding the complex structure of technical standard specifications

Identifying mandatory, optional and implementation specific features of the standards

Performing claim constructions for scoping of claims

Identifying totally new standards that are applicable to your patents

Creating litigation grade SEP charts

Our Approach

The Way We Do It

We perform analysis of the patent portfolio through a combination of manual and automated techniques in order to shortlist the patents that are likely to be applicable to standards. After obtaining the shortlist of patents following are the detailed steps followed:

  1. Identifying relevant standards for each patent
  2. Identifying relevant features preferably mapping the mandatory features first followed by other features as per the claim requirements.
  3. Performing standard mapping with relevant sections and ensuring critical feature is mapped
  4. Additional research on journals/articles/whitepapers to enhance the mapping of standards with every claim element
  5. Identifying specific product implementation available in public domain in case mapped features are implementation specific
  6. Identifying standard compliant products and proceeding with claim charts.
  7. Perform further research in case no direct standard identified for other applicable SSOs, groups that define standards/protocols in the similar domain
