Evaluating Large Patent Portfolios – Hybrid Approach
Evaluating huge patent portfolios for infringement and evidence of use (EoU) is a daunting task, being each time and labor-intensive. We have developed a method that simplifies the entire process. Our hybrid method is unfold throughout three phases:
- Automated ranking & categorization based on the likelihood of infringement
- Manual detailed analysis for EoU on leading databases
- Drafting of customized claim charts
Phase 1 involves Automated Patent Portfolio Pruning, wherein, using our proprietary tool XLPAT we rank the patents in a Patent Portfolio into three categories – Gold, Silver & Bronze.
Gold patents are the ones that have a high likelihood of getting infringed by products manufactured by competitors followed by silver and bronze patents.
