Patents, like you've never seen them before.

By combining proprietary AI and industry-leading IP expertise, IPDefine can evaluate the monetization potential of an entire patent portfolio in less time, and with a higher level of precision, than it would traditionally take to accomplish the same evaluation of a single patent.

    Infringement Discovery

    Our Infringement Discovery algorithm analyzes all of the information on the web to automatically detect and generate usable data on patent infringement–sometimes identifying multiple instances of infringement of a single patent, spanning various industries. Potential applications: Visualization of overall infringement of a patent portfolio (for due diligence, valuation, etc.) Monetization (utilizing infringement data for revenue generation via licensing, assignment, litigation, etc.) Cross licensing (leveraging infringement data for negotiations)

  • 02 /

    Validity Rating

    Our Validity Rating algorithm can assess, rate, and generate a comprehensive report breaking down the validity of a patent, in seconds. Applied to larger portfolios of patents, the benefits increase exponentially.
    Potential applications:
    Visualization of a patent portfolio's overall validity (for due diligence, investor relations, corporate governance, valuation, etc.) Cost reduction (avoiding annuity fees for low validity patents) Spot validity examination (preparing for license negotiations, defending against infringement accusations, etc.) Portfolio optimization (via reissue, assignment, cross license, etc.) Risk reduction (identifying which patents to rely on for product development)

IPDefine exists for one reason: To provide groundbreaking solutions that empower patent owners to visualize, optimize, and monetize their patent portfolios.
