Keep a Watchful Eye on Your and Your Competitors’ IP
A patent watch refers to the regular monitoring and tracking of newly published IP information. It is a vital service for business owners, financiers, investors, and inventors across all industry sectors.
Keeping a comprehensive watch on yours and your competitors’ IP activity is good business practice, one that effectively minimizes risk and allows you to optimize your resources. A patent watch can keep you ahead of the curve by helping you identify potentially infringing patents, contest harmful applications early on, spot fresh (inbound and outbound) licensing and acquisition opportunities as they arise, and more.
