Patent Research and
-analysis: You want to
own your idea.

Why patent research and -analysis? Never have more patents been registered than today. China recently became the No. 1 player with regards to the number of patent registrations, followed by the U.S.. Welcome in the globalised world. We live and work in a knowledge economy. It is not only the idea that counts but also the fact that one can and may commercialise it, and ideally even worldwide. 85% of the global technological knowledge can be found in patent literature. Foresighted companies thus use these sources to detect and evaluate new technologies in time. It is critical for success that the companies safeguard their rights via patent registrations in the strategic business field, giving security for the future.

The importance of IP and patent registrations has increased tremendously over the last couple of years. Nowadays, IP is a central asset of every start-up and raises the value of the company.

Freedom-to-operate research

Before a property right is registered and in order to defend a patent in a law suit, it has to be ensured that a registrationable “latest technological status” exists. This will be validated and documented in a (global) patent and literature research.

Patent research and -analyses

The innovation consultancy KEY VALUES monitors the patent development, trends, intensity of competitors, current and new registration areas (IP landscaping) as well as who owns the competence

Freedom-to-operate-research
Based on our self-developed method and tools, we conduct global FTO-researches. Next to patent databases we can search efficiently for keywords in websites, blogs, forums and publications.

IP-researches and analyses
In the framework of innovation management, we make new technologies and usages visible, reveal new technology-trends, conduct competitor analyses and identify white spots.
