Why hasn’t patent data been used before?

Patents are tedious legal and technical documents. It takes highly-paid experts thousands of hours to review documents before any patterns emerge. This process must be repeated for every market sector of interest. It was impossible to get this data in real time. Until now.

Fact: Patent investment always leads market activity.

In 2013, US Patent law changed, giving priority to the first-to-file, not the first-to-invent. Any company gearing up to enter the market will leave a trail of paperwork full of their intentions. We’ve seen this pattern repeated over and over. (We predicted Fitbit’s acquisition by Google. Read about it here) Knowing where the opportunities lie (and which areas to avoid) is essential in creating a valuable IP portfolio.
