Legal Professionals

From a legal stand point, it is widely known 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, people had to rely on anecdotes, incomplete data, and local data. With our platform, users have access to extensive data from more than 150 countries, giving them an advantage and allowing them to make fact-based decisions.

Business Professionals

Intellectual property has a significant impact on businesses around the world. As a result, IP has become an area frequently discussed at the board level. Board of Directors and managers alike need facts in order to make the right decisions for their business.

But what are the facts and how reliable are they? With our platform, business professionals can have confidence in the data supporting our reports and findings.

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.

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.

  • 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.

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 mark. 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?
