What we're doing

  1. Linking patents applicants (currently 110 million) to our vast universe of around 300 million companies, so you can now see extensive patent portfolios for a company, and its corporate group.
      
  2. Providing an ownership timeline for all live patents so you can see how many transactions a given patent has had, and assess the trends and commercial appeal of a new technology.
      
  3. Tracking M&A transactions so you can monitor patent ownership changes when they’re sold as intangible assets in an M&A deal, as well as when a patent, or patent portfolio, is sold independently. You can also identify and analyze deals in specific sectors or industries.
       
  4. Identifying Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) so you can identify high-quality patents in a company’s portfolio, or see which companies own these “foundation technology” patents.
       
  5. Delivering portfolio and patent valuations for all granted live patents, and tracking valuation trends over time.
