Build a Comprehensive Patent Portfolio with Strategic Prosecution.
Sagacious IP’s Directed or Strategic Patent Prosecution Support service enables you to build a comprehensive patent portfolio by identifying the products that are very close in terms of the technology disclosed in the claims of a subject patent and then making changes to the claims so that the ease of identifying infringement for the updated claims increases. These claims are then filed in an application as a CP or CIP.
A large Fortune500 telecom giant from Europe asked us to identify infringement of their portfolio in the area of microcontrollers. We identified some patents that were infringed and then some patents where there was Intent of Use (IoU). However, not all claim limitations were present. Moreover, there were claim terms which did not make sense to be included. There were many low-level details that could have been excluded from the claim. The resulting application was filed as CP.
Sagacious routinely analyses the patent portfolio of a Fortune100 company to identify patents that have at least 1 open application. These patents are then evaluated against its competitor’s products to see if there is a need to tweak the claims.
