SEP

How we confirmed the SEPs in Digital Video Broadcasting

A Standard Essential Patent is like the hen that lays golden eggs. But in order to benefit from the eggs, you gotta find the hen in your coop! In a recent case when Shivam had to analyze the essentiality of a set of patents w.r.t Digital Video Broadcasting standards. He analyzed, re-analyzed, and used wonders of algebra proving LHS=RHS until he was sure he has found the hen.

How I confirmed the essentiality of a patent in the LTE domain

“3GPP Release 8” is an LTE specification that in no time turned into a buzzword at every smartphone event.
Can you imagine what a patent overlap on these standards brings to a company?

I’d say, a plethora of potential monetary benefits! From submitting the patent in patent pools, licensing it directly to an opportunity of tech exchange negotiations.
With so much to offer you cannot afford to miss a #SEP of such significance. So today, Shivam Kansra, SEP analyst at GreyB comes bearing yet another case where we connected dots to prove a patent as SEP and saved a company from losing a lifetime opportunity.

Strategy to quickly identify SEPs in a huge portfolio

Finding SEP’s within a portfolio of thousands of patents can be a pain in the neck! Wouldn’t you agree?
Well, Shivam, a Standard Essential Patent Analyst at GreyB, has a hack, to narrow down a company’s huge portfolio and figure out the SEP’s from the stack- Track the company’s contribution to the standards of the technology and that should do it!
Wanna know how?
Well, let’s head over to the video and take a look at the case study Shivam has in store!

Quickly filtering SEPs in a huge portfolio

Is cutting down on unnecessary efforts in futile patent searching and delivering more effective results in less time what your heart desires? Well, Shivam, a standard-essential patent analyst at GreyB, is back again with yet another update on an effective strategy for locating gem patents from a portfolio of thousands of patents. What is this strategy, you wonder? Identify the delegates of the organization that participated in the 3GPP meetings and target their portfolio! But how would that help? Watch the video and see how Shivam explains his strategy with a detailed case study!

Patent Searching

Importance of understanding client’s objective in patent searching

System prior art: Invalidated a user interface related patent by recreating the app environment

Have you ever come across situations when the online literature search turned out to be a complete waste? If you just nodded affirmatively, Supreet has something interesting for you! A case of a Chinese mobile manufacturer where the only clue in hand were a few product manuals and the twist was that all the datasheets were, alas, published “after the priority date”. Considering the extremely limited ways the team was left with, the case rather took very drastic turns along the way. But none of them became a reason for us to stop. The hunt was on and we finally hit the fish in the eye!

Locating prior art related to structural details

Do you face challenges in locating killer art for old patents covering structural details? If yes, then this video could be the right pick for you. Let’s instantly consider a troublesome old structural patent from the printer domain. Here, the claim is not only limited by the structural elements but also has an exactly defined no. of printer components introduced.
Now the question is how to deal with the mammoth size literature that comes up in such cases? Supreet, a Senior Research Analyst at GreyB shares her viewpoints on confronting such daunting situations. Her approach- lead with the benefits

Going deep into the concept, Instead of word searching

Looking for yet another strategy to find a killer prior art? Well, you’ve landed on the right video! This time, Goury Sikka, a prior art search specialist at GreyB, discusses the approach she took to uncover a concept related to 3GPP in a WiMax standard. A strategy of starting the investigation by understanding tech evolution and the different terminologies being used by tech contributors to define the same or similar concept. Further in the video, she tunes with the crucial step to understand how different standard bodies have contributed to the evolution of technology. Head over to the video to get into the deets of the strategy to find killer prior art!

Stuck in the pool of patents doing Citation Analysis?

Imagine saving hours of grunt work and focusing all that energy on making strategies. Fascinating? Well then here’s a productivity enhancer for you that will aid you to cover a wide and deep network of citations in 1/20th of the time you used to spend! In this video, Goury Sikka introduces a time-saving tool for citation analysis and explains the difference between the usual citation analysis and the one using the tool! #BOSbyGreyB

Tech-evolution and jargons can help you find the Killer prior-art

Do you know identifying the technology evolution can be another ‘ACE’ in your deck of strategies for locating a killer art? Wondering how? Sayani, a Prior art Analyst talks about understanding technology jargon, like If you’re locating mixed media calls before 2000, then you might look into H.324 protocol of ITU-T. But what if I tell you that AT&T used to call this concept “VideoPhone” and also launched a phone with this feature in 1992. This knowledge about the evolution of technology can make the distance between you and that killer art to ZERO.

Importance of Timeline in Locating Prior Art for General Features

Ever got stuck while locating prior art for general and common elements? Usually, searching for general features gives enormous search hits. It becomes extremely time-consuming and painstaking while noticing minute differences in obvious-looking art. But, according to Surbhi Gautam, Prior Art Search Specialist at GreyB, it is important to observe the evolution of features and plot it in a form of a timeline. As in one of her recent cases, she observed that there were a number of products covering similar features launched after the critical date of the patent. The strategy she came up with was plotting the timeline and narrowing it down to the specific timeframe which finally led her to the product. Let’s hear from her, the full story encapsulating all the deets.
