Time period coverage
Links patent applicants (currently 110 million) to companies, so one can see patent portfolios for a company, and its corporate group.
Provides an ownership timeline for all live patents so one can see how many transactions a given patent has had, and can assess the trends and commercial appeal of a new technology.
Tracks M&A transactions so one can monitor patent ownership changes when they’re sold as intangible assets in an M&A deal, as well as when a patent, or patent portfolio, is sold independently.
Identifies Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) so one can find high-quality patents in a company’s portfolio, or can see which companies own these “foundation technology” patents.
