Patent Research Solutions

Patent researchers require simple and advanced tools to search through the patent literature. PatWorld provides an easy to use platform to quickly search technology areas and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of patent researchers to enable them to carry out basic name searches, prior to filing, freedom to operate, patent busting, state of the art and analytics.

Patent Alerts/Monitoring

Easily set up automatic email alerts to detect new patents and changes in patent activity. These can be set up (from the history page) to create alerts on a regular basis such as weekly, monthly or quarterly.

Share Projects to Collaborate

Keep a record of all searching, notes, charts, and star-rated patents in a ‘project’, then share that information directly with clients and co-workers. Achieve a high level of seamless collaboration by working from the same ‘project’ as your colleagues.

Extract patent data and create reports

Run a search and then extract the results into an Excel file.

Analyse your search results by marking them from 1 to 5 stars and add notes to each of your top results. These results with their stars and notes can be automatically pulled into a report.

Determine Freedom to Operate

Identify the risk of an invention infringing existing patents in the relevant country/countries and therefore the risk of litigation.

Identify Patent Busting Prior Art

Search the patent literature to help identify if a patent is valid and provide additional information in support of a defence.

Analyse the State of the Art for a particular technology

Collect together patents relating to how a particular problem has been solved over the years. Identify areas in the early stages of research that are lacking in development as well as those that have been heavily developed. Use charts to help visually represent these areas.
