Discover the unexpected in our unique collections of technical non-patent literature and patents using our proprietary Semantic Gist search engine.
Tired of keyword searches leading to dead ends? Our Semantic Gist search engine is a smarter way to search. By using semantic search, Gist can find documents that other searches miss.
Our Intellectual Property (IP) databases are an international collection of technical non-patent and patent publications. The robust collections contain an ever-increasing number of international patent databases, as well as carefully selected non-patent technical disclosures from the corporate and academic researchers – including our own Prior Art Database.
Our patent collection includes United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), European Patent Office (EPO), People’s Republic of China State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO), Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), Patent Abstracts of Japan (PAJ) and Australian Intellectual Property Office (IPAU). Data is also supplemented with DOCDB from the EPO. The availability of database collections and analysis provided varies depending on whether you are an anonymous, registered, or fee-based user.
Secure your innovation in the Prior Art Database.
Defensive publication is a fundamental component to a successful intellectual property program. Patenting is extremely expensive and most companies have more innovative ideas than budgeted patent resources. Defensive publication is a low cost means to prevent competitors from patenting your innovation while protecting your freedom to operate.
The IP.com Prior Art Database was created to provide innovative companies with a fast and effective way to publish their innovation into a single, publicly searchable, library indexed, collection of prior art. In addition to providing ease of use, the IP.com Prior Art Database has extensive safeguarding measures, to provide evidence of document integrity and date stamp in the event you need to present it at trial.
The unique non-patent literature (NPL) in the IP.com Prior Art Database is best accessed here at its source. The IP.com Prior Art Database is published intentionally and specifically to create defensible prior art. Each disclosure is digitally notarized upon publication to guarantee that the content and date are firmly established in the public domain. Disclosures are disseminated widely to libraries and patent offices around the world.
Establishing priority requires placement into the public domain. The more accessible a disclosure is, the more valuable it becomes. IP.com accomplishes placement in two ways. First, the IP.com Prior Art Database provides free, on-line access here at this website to both casual users and professional prior art researchers. IP.com also circulates The IP.com Journal which includes both printed and digital forms of disclosures to national and international patent authorities and libraries.
Engage our subject matter experts to deliver superior intellectual property research and analytics.
IP.com’s team of engineers and scientists apply their experience in a wide range of industries and areas of IP research to offer thorough search services tailored to your business needs. Our analysts perform the following searches:
- Patent Landscaping
- Freedom to Operate (FTO)
- State of the Art
Our work goes well beyond what a keyword-based firm will do for you. Because we understand what you are looking for, our analysts provide only the information that is most relevant to your subject matter. Our project management and quality assurance processes consistently deliver timely, accurate results. You get the most valuable information in the least amount of time. We design the reports as standalone documents that make results analysis – and your work – easier. For example, our patentability reports include each reference’s bibliography as well as text excerpts from cited sources to eliminate ambiguity. All reports show the search strings used, patents classes referenced, and databases covered, and include copies of referenced documents.
