Next generation inventions: a computer-human perspective (Industry reports)
A new generation of technologies which incorporate automation and autonomous artificial intelligence can perform tasks with human-like ability and appear to be transforming inventorship as we know it.
Patent search: the evolution from manual to artificial intelligence (Industry reports)
The evolution of patent searching from manual to AI-based methods is unique. Millions of data sets can now be searched using simpler, faster and more dependable tools.
CRISPR: the gene editing tool making the world go round (Industry reports)
While an interference battle over patents relating to clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat technology between two major biotech companies was officially settled last year, the licensing war is far from over.
Legal risk of cloud computing (Industry reports)
As cloud computing applications are regularly integrated into complex cloud systems, companies must ensure that their cloud-based solutions are not inadvertently infringing patented inventions.
Evolution of patent claim drafting (Industry reports)
Applied in the right context, artificial intelligence can provide a cheaper, quicker and more convenient method for evaluating certain aspects of patent claim drafting than retaining an expert to analyse claims manually.
Humans versus robots: changes in patent drafting trends (Industry reports)
While patent specification drafting can be laborious, it is a significant and skill-based task, and one which the IP sector should rely on professionals to complete.
Disruption in the IP ecosystem: 3D printing perspectives in start-ups (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.
