Reports & Analytics

Assess trends and answer critical questions based on darts-ip global data.

Legal Professionals

From a legal stand point, everyone knows that pre-grant appeals, post-grant proceedings and litigations are complex, expensive and risky. But did you know that those risks can be quantified?

Traditionally one had to rely on anecdotes, and on local and incomplete data.

Business Professionals

From a business perspective, it is now finally understood that Intellectual Property has a major impact on most businesses.  And hence, Intellectual Property has become a board level issue.   

Board rooms and managers need facts to be able to make the right decisions.  But what are the facts?  And how reliable are they?

Reports & Analytics Insights

With darts-ip reports and analytics, you can assess the facts and gain new insights to generate local and global strategies without drilling into each individual case in the Darts-ip databases.

When we analyse a case, we enter up to 140 different non-legal data points. For each of the 11 harmonised legal zones, we have about 300 possible legal points for patents and 350 possible legal points for trademark.

We produce reports and analytics on any of these data points. Pricing depends on the extent of the report and reports are typically delivered within 48 hours.

Let us know what complex questions we can answer.

Patent – Business Reports

Monitor what a company is doing with its patents

  • Do you want to know what products a company intends to develop in the future? Which sectors or products is a company relying on for its growth? Look at its patents! More specifically, identify which patents they are actively attacking or defending and has the focus changed over time?
  • Who are the main companies litigating in a particular industry? Which company is the most aggressive and where? Who are the main opponents of a particular company? What has the evolution been over time?
  • How successful has the company been at defending its patents and at stopping other companies filing patents? How does its win rate compare to industry peers?

NPEs (Non Practicing Entities)

  • Are NPEs active in a particular sector? Are they successful at obtaining favourable outcomes? How much compensation have they obtained in court actions?
  • Where is a particular NPE active around the world? Does an NPE have a specific industry focus? Who is it usually attacking? How successful has it been?

Patent or patent portfolio analysis. Industry / Market overview

  • Are the patents still valid? If so, where in the world are they still valid? Who has challenged a particular patent and where? On what grounds? These are essential questions to be asked in case of due diligence and competitive analysis.
  • When considering entering a specific market, or to invest in a particular technology, identify how litigious (or how “hot”) it has been in the area of interest. Compare how “hot” it has been in a variety of regions.

Potential damages awarded

  • Are your patents being infringed? Are you considering entering a particular market? See the damages awarded in a certain country/court for infringing a patent. See how often damages have been awarded in certain technology areas. What has the evolution been over recent year?

Know who you are up against. Monitor what companies are doing with their trademarks

  • Companies register a large number of trademarks for a large number of products. But which are the most important ones? Look at the ones they’re actively protecting!
  • Does the company have experience defending its trademarks? Is it aggressively attacking holders of similar trademarks? How many cases has the company been involved in (as defendant or plaintiff)? Where in the world have these cases taken place? What has the evolution been over time ?
  • How successful has the company been at defending its trademarks and at stopping other companies from filing potentially similar trademarks?
  • See what a company’s win rate is in appeal in administrative hearings worldwide and when its trademark was refused on absolute grounds.

Potential conflict report

Assess what your overall strengths are in the framework of one specific potential conflict.

  • Ad hoc reports on similarity between signs, similarity between goods, aggressiveness of a holder of a party. As representative of the screened mark PHYNIX you have a potential conflict with the already registered mark PHOENIX CONTACT in classes 9 and 41 and would like to assess the chances of success of an opposition. Is the owner of the prior mark usually defending his trade mark rights? How similar can the signs be deemed? Are educational services deemed similar to trainings?
