The surveillance of your patent is key to ensuring its value on the market. As such, our team is specialized in patent watch actions that prevent registrations of inventions identical or similar to yours that may be intended to bring about harmful or illegal acts, such as the infringement of the exclusive use granted by your rights.
Why watch my patents?
By maximizing the effectiveness of your inventions’ legal protection with the patent and utility model watch, infringements on your rights are reduced.
With constant monitoring, it is possible to ensure the primary objective of your rights: guaranteeing the monopoly on inventions. To this end, rights holders are informed about new filings for inventions whose technical characteristics could jeopardize the exclusive manufacture, sale, or importation faculties in each jurisdiction and, consequently, decrease the value of your inventions.
By identifying these potential problems as quickly as possible, you reduce the cost of solving industrial property issues with more complex procedures.
How can we help you with patent watch?
After the registration of one of these forms of protection, we will always be alert to possible infringements. We notify you when third parties attempt to register patents or utility models with technical characteristics that are identical or similar to those of your registered inventions. We then proceed with an opposition strategy against the new application.
To identify cases of exclusivity infringement, we have advanced technological systems to watch new patents and utility models, regardless of the jurisdiction.
If illegal actions are identified, we define an appropriate strategy by contacting administrative authorities and by finding grounds for further action.
Our professionals master not only the procedures for monitoring the chosen form of protection, but also the specifics of the market and the outlining of the technical measures that can and should be taken.
As the name suggests, Technology Watch analysis provides an overview of the crucial activities that take place in a specific technology. Patracode provides expert analysis reports based on requirements of the clients. Technology Watch involves the process of Capturing and analysing the relevant data and disseminating and transmitting information and knowledge in a manner to keep the client informed regarding the main developments in a specific technology sector.
Our team has vast experience in generating Technology watch reports in several subject domains. Technology watch is required in most Research & Development departments, to ensure that they are on track with respect to the growth and advancement of technology. This analysis is also known as competitive watch, strategic watch or technology/standard watch. In order to generate technology watch reports, our teams use several resources to get the most recent and trending information on any technology in question. Most resources include scientific journal, patent publications, non-patent literature, etc. There are several strategies that our technology experts incorporate to perform these reports.
Our team first provides an overall description regarding the present scenario of the particular technology using the data that is generated through analysis. The team then advices the clients regarding different strategies that the company may use to grow in that particular stream in terms of Research & Development. Most companies go forward with technology watch to assess their stand in the market. One essential aspect about technology watch is to assess activities of competitors.
Assessing competitors provides a motivation to work towards bigger goals, as growth in technology is a non-stop activity. With respect to the assessment or analysis of the data that is collected, there are few constraints. A technology watch can be dependent on geographical areas, and may differ from one geography to another.
The volume of data to be assessed will differ from report to report as it is based on the frequency at which the searches are conducted to collect relevant data. If the data is limited then the analysis of technology growth or technology scenario may also be limited. In technology watch reports, the Patracode team gives higher importance to scientific journals and non-patent literature as it provides an insight into the most recent developments.
Patent literature takes longer to be available to the public and therefore what is available at a specific time period is based on the latest developments. To get the best exposure into current knowledge, referring to non-patent literature provides a stronger report. The conclusions will differ from report to report as it is based on the requirements of the client and also based on the strategy that is used.
A technology watch report is highly subject to a time period. Due to the speed at which there is advancement in technology, within months, there may be substantial changes in a technology sector. It is always advisable to have yearly reports for companies that are constantly in the process of developing new products.
At Aristocrat Market Research we consider each report with a new strategy. As technology advances, the strategies to analyse these technologies are also revised. Patracode’s team always provides a thorough overview of the present scenario of a technology sector, based on client specific requirements in the most efficient way. We are constantly working towards providing the most comprehensive technology watch report for our clients.
