From Our Clients

I’ve had many constructive interactions with various folks at IP.com over the years and it is clearly my most effective patent searching tool — I’ve recommended it to many others.

I’ve been working from home and your product is performing perfectly. I can’t imagine being effective without access to this essential tool for IP portfolio management, acquisition, and enforcement.

Nobody cares how much an inventor likes her patent. An objective patent evaluation is needed of the patent as an asset. I found that in the Patent Vitality Report from IP.com. The breadth of peer patents analyzed is far beyond what I could have included on my own, giving me the benefit of discovering the market and emerging technology. The identification of strengths and weaknesses fed the construction of claims for my continuation patent. I recommend this service!

Rebecca Chaky, Ph.D.Inventor
