The wide use of connectivity technologies makes owning as well as licensing-in Standards Essential Patents (SEPs) crucial across industries. Consequently, an IP strategy for connectivity is much more than just about prosecution and enforcement. An organization’s patenting activities must consider standards-development activities as well as the use of third-party IP.
However, it is highly challenging to align patent portfolio development and patent licensing initiatives with R&D and standards-developing goals. The solution to deal with such challenges is a systematic data-driven approach that allows competitor monitoring, patent valuation, patent mapping to standards, and testing a portfolio across multiple metrics to identify the potential value as well as the identification of new standards projects.
Multidimensional access to declared SEPs, pooled patents, litigation info, standards contributions, and standard documents data empowers stakeholders to be part of the discussion and have a seat at the table when setting standards, developing SEP portfolios, licensing patents, and forming pools.
Companies can utilize a combination of analytics and advanced decision-making processes to improve their return on invested capital for their SEP portfolios or to prepare to license-in standardized technologies subject to SEPs. This webinar series will answer all your questions about How to Bridge the Gap between Patents and Standards Data.
The second episode of this new webinar series, “Generating insights from Licensing and Litigation Data” is going to be held on Tuesday, October 25th, 2022, at 4 PM CET / 10 AM ET.
Patent pools gather patents essential to a technology standard to offer a one-stop SEP license. Still, licensing SEPs is also often agreed upon in bilateral licensing negotiations. Licensors and licensees not finding an agreement often yields patent litigation. Patent pool data as well as SEP litigation data provides valuable insights about SEPs available in a pool license and about those organizations that are or have been in court proceedings.
In the second episode of this webinar series, Tim Pohlmann the CEO of IPlytics will elaborate on how to make sense of SEP data to answer all your questions about:
- How to connect pooled patents and declared patents to understand SEP ownership.
- How to identify patent pool share for standards
- How to analyze and make use of SEP litigation data to navigate risks
