Greetings from SciTech Patent Art (SPA)!
Patent litigations – oppositions, invalidations, or infringements – require search expertise beyond patent databases. Non-patent literature, however, does not exist in one structured database for a user to search and extract results. IP analysts need significant IT support to extract most relevant, publicly available non-patent information.
SciTech Patent Art’s difference is evident here. Our IT team works closely with our IP analysts to help our clients build their case, and routinely supports our IP analysts in digging through tens of thousands of documents to uncover highly relevant information.
In addition, our two-way consultation approach between our analysts and the client enable to confirm project scope; discuss relevant references and fine tune search strategies / scraping techniques.
An example case study is presented in the link below where we crawled and extracted more than 10,000 product manuals quickly and compared patent claims against product features to detect potential infringements. SPA’s IT team’s ability to automate the process helped our IP analysts improve turnaround time, productivity and overall quality of the output dramatically.
