Infringement analysis helps patent holders determine if a product, process or service violates their patent rights. Also, infringement analysis helps companies associated with a product, process or a service determine if they are violating rights of any patent. We can not only identify potential infringers for your patent but also can identify companies that may not be infringing the patent but may be potential targets for licensing your patent.
We understand the criticality of infringement search and analysis for companies, and address the same by adopting a detailed approach in providing infringement opinion. Our approach for identifying infringement is divided into two steps:
EoU chart or Claim Chart for a patent is a detailed analysis of the patents claims and their mapping with the features of a target product or with elements of other patent. Claim charts provide the technical evidence required to strengthen your litigation or patent licensing activities.These charts helped Attorneys to prove infringement in court of law. Claim charts/EoU Charts may consist text and graphical mapping between the independent claim of the patent and the target product/service/technology. If the patent owner determines to sell license the patent assets, proof of patent infringement can help strengthen the terms of the sale.

Our team of researchersare from various technological backgrounds belonging to HITECH sector and Engineering domain. Also, they possess excellent blend of technical and legal expertise. We are known for comprehensive and accurate technology analysis and in-depth patent research support.
While preparing the charts, our experts use the information available on white paper, product manuals & brochures, technical & geometrical specifications, videos, company's official blog, company's website and technical journals by target company. In some complex matters whole internet presence of the target product/service/companies is checked. We have also prepared successful charts on Technology standards and helped our clients gain an advantage. Our technology experts unearth the best evidence in the process for the client/attorney to use in every stage of courtroom litigation.

We prepare in-depth reports and our focus is to provide evidence against both, independent and dependent claims. We use various paid and fee databases so that we don t miss any important reference. We also provide our dedicated focus on Not patent literatures. In various cases we have succeed to invalidate the patent through Non patent literatures. We have the subscription of multiple scientific literature databases. We are known to prepare litigation grade search reports. We helped our clients in avoiding undesired lawsuits through our high grade search reports.
Though invalidity search may be a complex task but our expert team, access to databases, our proven method of search and our dedication is something through which we always come up with the most sound results and help our client in decision making.
Big corporates tends to have very large patent portfolio. It demonstrates the R&D capability of them. Even startups, today file for hundred of patents and it is no wonder if a comparatively new company, possessing multiple patents on various technology. It is considered a good practice to manage and categorize the patent portfolio according to some parameters like technology domain, complexity, claim types and many others. Technology domain is the most popular parameter to categorize the large patent portfolio.
Patent portfolio categorization is proven very useful when corporate decide to license their patents, use their patents in any lawsuit, start a new product/research. Patent portfolio categorization can be an ongoing process.
At ANUATION, we are known to provide the custom made solution according to client requirements.
Our team of domain experts is well trained to draw various levels of analytics from the thousands of patents filed worldwide. Freedom to Operate (FTO) search is conducted to mitigate the risks of infringement of patents in a particular region/country so that one can take a particular action, like launching, developing or producing a product, without infringing the IP rights of others.
At Anuation, region/country-specific comprehensive FTO searches are conducted by technical experts having extensive patent search experience along with various patent search strategies, wherein pending patent applications as well as granted patents are analyzed.

Deciding a value for an intangible asset is not an easy process. With our customized list of parameters and formulation techniques, we can provide an optimal value for your intellectual property. Patent valuation can be a complex and tedious task and if we talk about the patent portfolio, it is even more complex. Many parameter should be taken care of when deciding the value of patent portfolio like remaining life of patents, citations, claims, file wrapper, and most important is the technology area. Evaluating a patent portfolio includes a long going technical analysis of patents.
At Anuation, patent portfolio evaluation includes two phase. First phase includes automated analysis and ranking a patent on various parameters. This is done by our proprietary tool. In second phase team of analysts manually analyzes patent portfolio and decide the technology scope and claim importance. We have our own standard mythology for this procedure. Once this analysis is completed, the outcome is combined with automated rank that was generated previously.
This is done for every patent in the portfolio and individual value of patent is also calculated. After this whole procedure, all the data is combined to decide the final valuation of patent portfolio. If necessary, patent portfolio should be divided into pool of sub portfolio for better monetization purpose.
This can be a complex and long procedure but at Anuation patent evaluation is done with confidence and precision because of our own developed standards and methodology. So you can trust on us in monetizing your patent portfolio with best value.
