Problem this service resolves:
The number of active patents continues to grow, and it is often hard to know where you stand in the sea of IP. You are often left asking yourself, do my patents cover my product/services or technology? Where do I stand in relation to my competitors? What are my competitors doing with IP? Where can I invent, or should I be inventing? And the list goes on…
So how do you sort through all these patents and make any sense of it. Now patents are categorized using classification codes, but these classifications are often broad and not designed for the purpose detail categorization and analysis.
