Standard Essential Patents
Is your company involved in standardization? Do you actively contribute in the standard making process? Are you dealing with Standard Essential Patents? Are you faced with Standard Essential Patents from a competitor?
Our patent attorneys at AIPEX have extensive experience in drafting patent applications that are to cover technology described in a technical standard. We are used to convert standard proposals into quality patent applications that can be mapped on the relevant technical standard. We take into account that your standard proposals may be refined before they are accepted in the standard. Our patent applications therefore include these possible refinements such that we mitigate the risk of an unsuccessful mapping of the application to the technical standard.
In addition to the above, we have extensive experience in creating claims charts for demonstrating that the patent applications actually map to the standard. This provides you with an additional comfort in assuring that you have a high value patent portfolio that can be licensed to your customers.
Our patent attorneys at AIPEX also a have extensive experience in prosecuting patent applications that are to cover technology described in a technical standard. We are used to working with the technical standards, and creating claim charts, for ensuring that possible amendments that are to be made to the patent application are still mappable to the technical standard. We frequently update the claim charts along the life span of the patent application in the prosecution phase, so that you will always have up to date claim charts available for licensing purposes. These kind of actions allow you to effectively determine the market value of your patent portfolio at any moment in time, thereby boosting the licensing negotiation process with your customers.
