How start-ups are disrupting the factory with 3D printing an IP perspective (Industry reports)
Three-dimensional printing has many uses and benefits for manufacturers, including rapid prototyping, lower production volumes, greater flexibility in product customisation and increased product lifecycles. However, IP protection in this domain is difficult under existing policies and using existing enforcement methods.
Cloud computing patent litigation on the rise (Industry reports)
Cloud computing forms a space where technologies are complex and different solutions converge. A growing number of companies are filing for patent protection on cloud computing technologies or acquiring earlier-filed patents to defend themselves against future litigation.
How to count and valuate standard-essential patents (Industry reports)
Standardised technologies such as 3G, 4G and soon 5G will strongly contribute to the next technological revolution of the Internet of Things. In this regard, standard-essential patents are increasingly the subject of lively debate among market observers, policy makers and regulatory institutions.
Patent analytics through reverse image search engines: user experience (Industry reports)
Despite a multitude of tools that host reverse image search engines, their application is still limited. There is huge scope for maturing this technology and applying it to the domain of professional patent searching.
Patent analytics through reverse image search engines: tools and application (Industry reports)
Reverse image search tools function in various ways: some allow users to drag and drop images for searching, while others request users to provide keywords, tags or a URL of the image. However, the use of these tools has yet to receive global acceptance in relation to patent searching.
Patent analytics through reverse image search engines (Industry reports)
As a robust, efficient and quick search mechanism for identifying patents can make a huge difference to businesses, a new generation of patent analysis tools has emerged that apply big-data analytics, cloud technologies, modern software development and data-improvement techniques.
Comcast patent purchase fails to deliver desired result (Industry reports)
An Eastern District of Virginia jury decision confirmed that when apportionment calculations for complex technologies do not clearly demonstrate how the infringed patent uniquely creates demand, they become vulnerable to simple pro rata arguments.
Cloud patent analysis results show that even cloud technologies which are considered to fundamentally rely on shared environments and follow public standards are subject to increasing patent filings and patent-acquisition activities.
Court relies on patent context to uphold $70 million trade secrets award (Industry reports)
The decision in CardiAQ v Neovasc highlights the risks that innovators run when they choose not to patent and instead to hold patent-eligible subject-matter innovations as trade secrets a practice that has been much discussed in recent years as US patent case law has eroded the timely enforceability of patents.
IT in intellectual property: boon or bane? (Industry reports)
With increasing IP filing rates, the process of managing, searching and optimally using intellectual property has become a major problem area for IP offices and applicants. While automation is greatly improving existing IP industry processes, it also has its limitations.
Evolution of IT in intellectual property: management activities (Industry reports)
While searching for and maintaining IP documentation can be tedious, new strategies for developing IP services using end-to-end automation and outsourcing aim to provide legal and corporate IP departments with more effective ways of managing their intellectual property.
Evolution of IT in intellectual property: an overview (Industry reports)
The resources required to manage patents and IP assets are becoming more crucial over time. However, the rapid growth in data digitisation and the infrastructure which supports it pose substantial challenges.
Patenting trend evaluation: 3D printing dental versus aerospace (Industry reports)
Patent trends clearly indicate that additive manufacturing is overtaking traditional manufacturing processes. As research shows that companies are striving to make higher-quality products in larger quantities, the need for greater efficiency through three-dimensional printing can no longer be doubted.
3D printing: manufacturing 4.0 adapting IP strategies (Industry reports)
The manufacturing industry is predicted to go through revolutionary changes when three-dimensional (3D) printing becomes commonplace. A concrete framework for appropriate IP strategies is required to address protection challenges in the domain of 3D technology head on.
Dawn of a new era in manufacturing debriefing IP strategies (Industry reports)
The competitive spirit of the modern technological era has created a need for enhanced IP strategies. A strategic evaluation by inventors and IP attorneys will play a pivotal role in identifying and avoiding IP protection risks.
Patenting in the age of supercomputers (Industry reports)
IBM’s supercomputer, Watson, is fast becoming the symbol of a new era in cognitive computing, with a radically new approach as compared to other programmable systems. It can only be a matter of time before Watson's abilities are applied to the domain of patent searching and analytics.
Protecting and enhancing IP value in technology licensing partnerships (Industry reports)
An IP partnership unravelling can have significant consequences not only to the value of the licensor or supplier of the intellectual property, but also to the perceived value of the underlying intellectual property. Entities supplying technology and other intellectual property should assess their IP partnerships to ensure that they are adequately protecting and enhancing both the IP value and the enterprise value.
Do PAEs stifle competition? Recent FTC study leaves that question unanswered (Industry reports)
The Federal Trade Commission recently undertook a study to assess the “competitive implications" of patent assertion entity (PAE) activity. Although the study makes a number of policy recommendations that touch on the competitive effects of PAEs, it remains silent as to whether certain PAE conduct does, in fact, stifle competition.
IP valuation for medical device innovations affected by US policy changes? (Industry reports)
IP values within the medical device industry appear to be declining based on a study of identified licensing transactions and royalty rates. To improve IP value, licensors must focus on demonstrating product and technology value to differentiate their licensing opportunity from others on the market and to command higher royalty rates, better deal terms and potential multiple licensing opportunities.
Smart patent analytics for leaders (Industry reports)
Data analytics is an important and growing area of the IP field. Smart patent analytics should provide reliable, unique and relevant insights into the patent landscape for both decision makers and patent experts.
