Patent alert and watch is an efficient monitoring and tracking system of both published patent applications and issued patents. These services assist clients in looking for patents of their interest that have been abandoned/ rejected/ expired and freely using them without any legal threat.

Patent alert and watch searches are tailor-made to suit clients requirements. Typically, these services are conducted on a systematic basis (weekly / biweekly / monthly / quarterly), and are classified as the following two types:

Technical Patent Watch

  • Monitoring newly published patent applications in a technical area of interest as soon as they are published
  • Monitoring latest prosecution status of pending patent applications in a technical area of interest
  • Monitoring latest legal status/continuation applications of granted patents in a technical area of interest

Competitor Patent Watch

  • Monitoring newly published patent applications of competitor companies and/or inventors as soon as they are published
  • Monitoring latest prosecution status of pending patent applications of competitor companies and/or inventors
  • Monitoring latest legal status/continuation applications of granted patents of competitor companies and/or inventors
