Patent Search that helps You Win!

Good results mean you are able to do the job using them!

Aren’t you tired of seeing prior art search reports which:

Have data validation issues for NPL literature cited as prior art

Lacks killer prior art

Are limited to patents only and may miss a strong prior art in NPL as NPL has no clear boundary

Contains a huge list of references without any indication to their usefulness

Lacks glaring overlap for identified references, making you spend a lot of time to qualify the prior art’s usefulness

Include interpretation gaps between search features/subject patent claims and identified prior art

If you’ve faced these issues, chances are, your search vendors are failing to relate to your objective.

What are the signs?

They go silent after taking the project, no sharing of analyst thoughts on search direction or interpretation of identified references, and no looking beyond the traditional search strategies or the patent databases for prior art.

If you are the one taking care of all these,
what’s the point of engaging a search partner?

We know exactly what you need –

You need a search partner who not only understands your technology, industry, and needs; they stand beside you on each step of the project and make sure you get the results crucial for your win.

Combining the experience and expertise of our research scientists, and AI-powered tools, we don’t think of a search as an assignment but a challenge. And we love challenges.

Our formula of a great patent search –

Investigative Search through research scientists + AI powered tools + Grit

We don’t just carry out the search, we develop customized search strategies for each project we work on. There’s a reason we call them Search Scientists. 

When you choose GreyB as your search partner, we own it to our highest standards. Our search team stays in constant touch and keeps you updated about every progress and achieved milestones on your projects.

For example in case of patents including equations like –

A close analysis of file wrapper and cited art revealed EQ1 was known –

Comparison of EQ-1 and EQ-2 indicates the difference of Δβ. Now one can start looking for an exact equation but on understanding the concept it can be easily said that EQ-1 means more power has been used to control signals as compared to the data signal in EQ-2. Now this concept of additional power in the existing signal can be easily located.

Let us show you some of our many proud cases:

Cases of our Investigative Approach to unearth killer art

It’s easy to search for patents because of boundaries, but NPL (products, blogs, books, interviews, lectures, videos, etc.) search has no boundaries and that’s no reason to undermine it.

A Chinese Version of Craigslist helped us in finding prior art

The subject patent dated Feb 2006, part of litigation in china, covered the concept of GUI of which cellular network calls were associated with, in the call log. >> Read more

How we found a prior-art in an online Museum

This time we had to invalidate a design patent for a decorative chair. Since the design was a bit tricky, US design and Locarno classifications seemed the best hit to find prior art but even after analyzing 36000 results, we couldn’t spot a good prior-art. >> Read more

How a sitcom helped us find prior art?

Our client was sued for infringement of a patent describing a handful of basic electronic actions: pulsation, IC communication & pulse counting.

It was either invalidating the patent or payment of millions of dollars by our client. >> Read more

Invalidating a 4G patent using Link adaptation (a concept of 90s)

The subject patent was related to a method of encoding the signal strength data having the priority year of 2000.

With no luck in scouring through 3GPP and other standards, we decided to explore >> Read more

Invalidation of a Patent related to Mathematical Expression

The patent understudy was related to the concept of a random access procedure that included a specific equation.

The challenge here? Mathematical expressions can be written in 1000s of variations and there is not a single database to search them. So with no strong lead to begin with, we quickly shifted our efforts on exploring standards. >> Read more

Invalidating a Composition Patent for an Inter Partes Review

The subject patent was related to a cigarette filter having gas adsorbing material and certain specific composition requirements.

We observed that patents disclosing filters with the gas adsorbing material were abundant. The specific composition requirements, however, were not being met. >> Read more

How do we make sure to meet and exceed your expectations?

Flexible and customer-oriented engagement model

Flexibility in our work style is one of our strong suits. Wherever required, we adopt an agile model of communication i.e. keep you updated with the search findings throughout the project cycle and when you are busy we set the right expectations from the beginning to avoid any gaps in output and trim the interim connections.

A 5-degree deviation in the beginning of a project can result in 50-degree deviation in the end output. We take it very seriously.

Easy to consume output that saves your time

tier-1

Results categorically arranged based on relevance

Tier 1 being highly relevant and anticipated as 102 prior art, tier 2 anticipated as 103 and tier 3 the category A arts.

claim-chart

Glaring proof of overlapping art

Overlaps based on the concepts located in prior art, not the word matching and are supported with analyst comments to make the interpretations crystal clear.

Validity/invalidity search

Our investigative approach and out of the box search strategies helps us find the most difficult prior art and invalidate some of the toughest cases. We do understand it’s not about finding references, it’s about getting the killer art. That’s why we are driven by the thought – “If it exists, we will find it”.

Freedom-to-operate

Get the confidence you need to place your product into the market. Our clearance searches not only gives you clarity about potential litigation threats, we help you in clearing those roadblocks by suggesting modification to design around existing patents.

Infringement Search

Find licensing opportunities for your patents by spotting infringement or evidence of use, especially in the cases where published literature was not enough to prove infringement.

The star point for me in your capability and services is how well you extend the search after my feedback in the invalidation projects. I am not sure if all companies follow this practice but I am quite happy to get your results and the routine feedback call you set up after the project is delivered.

  • Our corporate team has 4 divisions and we need a lot of work on the business use of patent data (Patent-Informatics). I got impressed with your dashboard capabilities, especially when you can ensure the accuracy of data behind the dashboard storyboards. This is quite a powerful tool with our internal customers as we need to present the patent picture very often.

    Large Corporate in Medical Device Industry, Boston, USA
  • As you know I work with you on FTO matters in consumer products industry. My project technologies are simpler but I need first turnaround times and clean reporting to make a go and no-go decisions. I am happy with the work I have been doing with you – it is good value for money and crisp reports, exactly what I want. Further, the particular point which has impressed me is – faster responses.
