Identifying high-value deal-driving patent(s) from a portfolio is always a tricky and effort-intensive task, irrespective of whether you own a handful of patents or own a substantially large portfolio of patents. Further not carrying out this activity may lead to both revenue loss from high value patents as well as unnecessary expenses in maintaining low quality patents. With experience of working on 1000s of such portfolios, Sagacious IP’s proprietary process (involving an AI algorithm and manual review) allows execution of this task quickly and economically.
A Japan-based licensing firm used our patent mining services to kick-start their various licensing programs. Multiple portfolios were screened to identify patents related to smartphone technologies and features (including cameras, UI aspects, apps, etc.). We used our proprietary ranking algorithm to sort the patent list and quickly screened through the patents (hundreds of them) to select a subset for detailed review. We identified infringement and prepared claim charts
A Seattle based company specializing in application services and application delivery networking (ADN) was sued for patent infringement and used our patent mining services for counter-assertion. We reviewed their patent portfolio and identified patents relevant to the target company and its products in a very short span of time using a hybrid (auto+manual) analysis. They were successful in negotiating a licensing deal based on our analysis.
