IP Intelligence


The ability to accumulate, assimilate and process data so as to monitor and predict competitive activity.


BiiP’s Landscape / Navigation as a tool


In order to establish the IP Landscape (fact generation), we perform a state-of-the-art search to create a patentability which analysis and visualizes the remaining avenues for potential of the client's idea. The objective of IP Landscaping is:

Lightball-Drafts

  • Identification of IP facts and remaining potential for the client's idea.
  • Stronger and better guided idea generation and resulting commercial meaningful protection.
  • Possibility of designing around existing intellectual property.
  • Up-to-date competitive analysis, benchmarking and trend analysis to explore the potential.

Search


We execute a worldwide search to determine the state-of-the-art. In case of patent activity, this includes non-patent literature, published patent applications and issued patents.
This state-of-the-art search will, among others, answer the following questions:
    • What patents exist in the field?
    • What technologies are already used?
    • What are the strengths (core patents/competencies)?
    • Who are the competitors active in the field?
    • How active are the competitors? Status?
    • How to build on strengths/core competences?

Landscape / Navigation


In a second step, we determine what else is possible, in particular with a view to get an edge over competition and to anticipate the future potential. Starting from the IP landscape, plotted on the BiiP heat map and using the trends analysis, we will establish and visualize the remaining potential of your idea.

We believe our IP Landscapes are the key for a top quality patent potential tool.

 

IP Watches

Watches
We regular run IP watches, fine-tuned to the client's expectations and action plans, to inform on important IP facts and IP benchmarking.
The IP watches will enable to:
  • pro-actively determine a defensive strategy against competitive IP
  • to stay aware of licensing-in or IP acquisition opportunities in the areas of interest
  • to timely react in case opposition proceedings can be lodged to invalidate a recently granted competitive patent.

IP Searches

8 Small Custom


Searching and intelligent interpretation of the search results are important steps in obtaining a patent, examining freedom of exploitation, and preparing for litigation.

We provide high quality searches in a timely fashion and at a fraction of the traditional cost. We offer several levels of searches depending on the client's business requirements.

Patentability Search

We perform a search for US and foreign patents, published patent applications, as well as non-patent literature. The objective is to examine the patentability of the client's invention.
We will advise on the patentability of client's invention in view of the identified documents and propose ways to find patentable commercially meaningful subject matter.
 

Pre-litigation Search

14 CustomWe perform a detailed, worldwide search for patents, published patent applications and non-patent literature including white papers, articles, Internet publications, etc. The search covers multiple technology areas and traces the history of events. The biip search engineers work in close conjunction with and at the direction of a senior IP attorney.

The objective is to prepare for litigation, e.g. a nullity suit to invalidate a competitor’s patent, or to prepare for opposition. biip can advise on the usefulness of identified documents as evidence in upcoming opposition or litigation proceedings.

Market & Competition Search

16 CustomWe perform a search for literature on the client's competitors and appearance of competitive products in the market. We thereto analyses competitor websites, and executes an in-depth Internet search.

The objective might be to gather market intelligence in preparing for R&D or product innovation, to reverse engineer competitive solutions or to establish evidence for violation of the client's intellectual property.

Trend Search

17 CustomWe perform an in-depth Internet search for technology trends and evolutions in an area of interest to its client.

The objective is to determine the players already active in a certain field and their competencies, the technologies already used, recent developments and the remaining potential based on trends analysis in the field of interest.

Legal Status Search

18We perform a search on the legal status of intellectual property rights such as patents in countries of interest to the client.



IP Competitive Intelligence

We perform a search for literature on the client's competitors and appearance of competitive products in the market. We thereto analyses competitor websites, and executes an in-depth Internet search.
The objective might be to gather market intelligence in preparing for R&D or product innovation, to reverse engineer competitive solutions or to establish evidence for violation of the client's intellectual property.

IP Trends Analysing

We perform an in-depth Internet search for technology trends and evolutions in an area of interest to its client. The objective is to determine the players already active in a certain field and their competencies, the technologies already used, recent developments and the remaining potential based on trends analysis in the field of interest.
