  • European Patent Office (EPO): Facts, figures and services for researchers and inventors

    The European Patent Office (EPO) supports innovation, competitiveness and economic growth across Europe through a commitment to high quality and efficient services delivered under the European Patent Convention (EPC). The EPO provides protection for an invention in up to 40 European countries on the basis of a single application. In the states for which it is granted, a European patent has the same legal effect as a national patent. The EPO provides applicants for a European patent with a detailed search report, and a written opinion on an invention's patentability, within just a few months from filing. Companies seeking a global market can also file an international ("PCT") application, choosing the EPO as their search authority. The EPO's public databases - containing over 90 million patent documents with information about inventions and technical developments - are one of the world's most abundant sources of information about technology. Patent Translate, the EPO's free machine translation service, covers 32 languages. It enables automatic translation from and into English, French or German for 27 other European languages (covering all the EPO member states), plus from and into English for Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian. In 2014 the top 5 countries of origin were the US, Japan, Germany, China and South Korea. Samsung headed the list of the largest applicants at the EPO in 2014, followed by Siemens and Philips. Among the ten most active filers, five companies came from Europe, three from Asia, and two from the US. Medical Technology was the field with the highest volume of applications followed by Electrical Machinery & Energy, both having about 10000 patent applications.

  • Patent collaborative filtering recommendation approach based on patent similarity

    In order to help enterprises deal with the situation of sharp increase in patent amount and improve enterprises' capabilities for patent utilization, the information filtering technology was introduced into patent management field. A patent collaborative filtering recommendation approach based on patents similarity and its corresponding algorithm was presented. This approach solves the problem of user rating data sparsity successfully: firstly, it calculates similarity between patents based on the concept of patent model tree, then predicts patent score with patents similarity, fills user rating matrix, and finally it calculates users' similarity to finish patent recommendation. Preliminary experimental results showed that the patent collaborative filtering recommendation approach based on patent similarity has a good performance in recommending patents and patent management system employing this approach can improve enterprises' capabilities in patent utilization.

  • Patent Maintenance Recommendation with Patent Information Network Model

    Patents are of crucial importance for businesses, because they provide legal protection for the invented techniques, processes or products. A patent can be held for up to 20 years. However, large maintenance fees need to be paid to keep it enforceable. If the patent is deemed not valuable, the owner may decide to abandon it by stopping paying the maintenance fees to reduce the cost. For large companies or organizations, making such decisions is difficult because too many patents need to be investigated. In this paper, we introduce the new patent mining problem of automatic patent maintenance prediction, and propose a systematic solution to analyze patents for recommending patent maintenance decision. We model the patents as a heterogeneous time-evolving information network and propose new patent features to build model for a ranked prediction on whether to maintain or abandon a patent. In addition, a network-based refinement approach is proposed to further improve the performance. We have conducted experiments on the large scale United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) database which contains over four million granted patents. The results show that our technique can achieve high performance.

  • Do we miscount patent citations? An empirical study on the impact of overlooking the citations to a patent's pre-grant publication

    Utility patent applications are usually published 18 months after they are filed and before patents are actually issued. These so-called pre-grant publications and their corresponding issued patents are both cited individually and concurrently by the applicants or examiners of subsequent patent applications as relevant prior art. Most patent analysts however overlook the citations to the pre-grant publications and consider only those to the issued patents. This study assesses the impact of such omission by comparing the citations to about 140,000 US utility patents and their pre- grant publications. The statistics shows that 70% of the patents are underestimated by various degrees if the citations to their pre-grant publications are ignored, suggesting that analyst should combine the citations to the pre-grant publications and to the patents together when evaluating patents or conducting patent citation analysis.

  • Development of Formalized Models and Methods of Assessment of Structural, Functional and Informational Completeness of Patent Collections

The obtained results were used in assessing the completeness and improvement of the thematic databases of the patent information fund of the Eurasian patent office.

  • Develop an integrated patent quality matrix for investigating the competitive features among multiple competitive patent pools

    The availability of modern technologies depends on the intellectual property licensing transactions. Patent pools, in particular, have emerged as important tools for organizing licensing activities. Traditionally, a patent pool aggregates the patents necessarily to practice a technology and avoids the transactional cost of separately negotiating licenses with multiple patent holders. More recently, competitive patent pools have emerged whereby multiple patent pools directed to related technologies vie for high-quality and essential patents and then competes for licensees. This research develops an integrated patent quality matrix for assessing the competitive features among multiple competing patent pools. The proposed matrix is built based on three primary patent quality dimensions: investment, maintenance (competitiveness) and litigation. Each dimension is composed of well-verified indicators. Based on the matrix result, we can identify the features and distribution of technology life cycle, commercial worth, and legal status of pool patents. This kind of patent quality intelligence can benefit potential licensees in assessing preferable patent pool.

  • Research on clustered patent mapping visualization and interaction

    Patent mapping, which is a series of mapping process with patent information, especially those unstructured information, such as patent claims, details and patent illustrations, is an important tool of patent analysis. Clustering is a popular method to mining the knowledge hidden in patents and provides abundant information to the visualization and interaction of patent mapping. A method of projecting the patents clustering tree along three directions to create tree-shaped patent map, scatter plot patent map and parallel coordinates patent map was proposed. A visualization and interaction structure was also set up based on Flex technology.

  • Development of Patent Filing Figures in the Field of Microelectromechanical Devices

  • Supreme Court to Hear Semiconductor Chip Patent "Exhaustion" Case

    The Supreme Court has decided, for the first time in many years, to hear arguments in a patent licensing case. The dispute involves whether the "exhaustion doctrine"-the rule that a patentee's or licensee's sale of a product "exhausts" patent rights over the sold product-is still alive and kicking. LG Electronics bought a patent portfolio from Wang Labs and began trying to enforce it. LG negotiated a license with Intel that, by its terms, gave Intel the right to make, use, and sell microprocessors and chipsets embodying the patented technology, but purported to withhold the right of purchasers of Intel microprocessors and chipsets to practice that technology. The LG-lntel agreement required Intel to send notices to its customers warning them that Intel's patent license did not apply to them.
