How to use reverse engineering to confirm patent infringement when other sources fail?
Where online literature fails to provide you enough evidence of infringement, reverse engineering could help you strengthen your case and extract maximum ROI of your patent.
How reverse engineering helps you in patent monetization?
- Can help you find the missing pieces in your infringement searches (cases where online literature was not sufficient to find a complete product/patent overlap)
- Cases where Claim/claim elements are such that they are not discussed in literature
- When you don’t have a reliable/authentic source for infringement evidence. (However, the court requires strong proof, so evidence collected from RE will be hard to refute)
- Reverse engineering can help you find products that can act as a prior art (when you’re representing a defendant)
