IP Mining

Our IP mining process can help uncover golden nuggets that lie hidden within an organization’s IP portfolio. Today, the sheer licensing income of U.S. coporates exceeds $100 billion. By proper assessment of IP portfolio, a company can improve bottom line and maximize shareholder value. Patent portfolio mining is usually done in tandem with effective marketing methods to extract value from the portfolio.

The process of portfolio mining begins with a review of all patents and categorization according to their strengths and fields of use, the technology involved, and their potential commercial uses. The mining process includes searches for new applications of the technology, emerging markets for the technology, extensions of the technology, potential infringement candidates, divisions for spin-outs and joint ventures.

Our comprehensive IP mining helps organizations to prioritize their portfolio, by categorizing patents according to potential value and estimated timeline for licensing each patent.
