Patent Standard Mapping
Patents describe new inventions, and constitute a temporary legal right to exclude others from using practices and products that are novel and original. Standards on the other hand define commonly accepted techniques. Standards reflect an agreement between different individuals, firms, or other entities to use a particular method.
Standard mapping service involves the analysis of technology standards and patent claims to identify overlapping between the two. If a patent is found to be essential to a technology standard, it can drastically increase the value of the patent. If one misses out on identifying all the relevant standard-essential patents while implementing a technology, one may get exposed to patent infringement litigations and suffer huge financial losses. Therefore, standard mapping service is very important for both patent licensee and patent licensor.
What it involves
Standard patent mapping involves matching the independent claims of a patent against the technology standards like IEEE, 3GPP, ISO, MPEG, MPEG-2/H.262, MPEG-4/H.263, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, etc. The possible source for standard searching includes Google-based web search, 3gpp FTP search, ETSI search, IEEE search, and Share tech note.
We provide element-to-element patent to standard mapping using multiple colors to represent different claim elements. The final report is delivered in word or a PPT format.
Our Logicapt team brings a team of expert engineers and industry experts having extensive IP experience, including Ph.D.’s and patent analysts who carefully read the patent claim(s) and map(s) them with the relative standard like IEEE, 3GPP, ISO, and Video encoding standard like MPEG, MPEG-2/H.262, MPEG-4/H.263, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, etc.
