Patent Monitoring

Monitor your patent rights and identify potential infringements

Do you want to stay up-to-date on any potential infringements of your rights? Patent monitoring is an essential service that assists you in maintaining a strong hold of your innovation assets, and helps you to enforce your patent rights.

Patent databases are a valuable source of information for patent watch

The importance of IP protection is increasing. Even though you might think so, a granted patent does not mean that you can relax and expect your invention to be safe: you still need to watch on-going patent activities for those that might infringe on your rights. It is your responsibility as the rights owner to identify potential infringements and to act on them in an appropriate way, e.g. by means of patent opposition or patent litigation. Therefore, monitoring is an integral part of our work process and applies to all intangible assets we help you protect.

Our patent attorneys can provide you with a monitoring service for your patents and determine a tailor-made search profile in collaboration with you. We scan the information available in patent databases on applications and granted patents, and we report relevant findings that concern your portfolio in line with agreed criteria on a regular basis. You can order weekly or monthly reports, or choose an interval that fits your needs and the patent activity within your industry. Our experienced patent attorneys can of course assist you to assess the relevance of this information.

Alternatively, or in addition to the monitoring of a specific patent, we can also set up a watch service that tracks the development of a specific a technology or business area, or the IP activities of one or more competitors.
