The patent ecosystem visualizes the 10 players with the most patent activity in your ecosystem. The patent ecosystem is based on new publications within the Cooperative Patent Classifications (CPC) from your input documents. Find new players in your technology’s ecosystem. From partners, competitors, customers to other important stakeholders. For example, find potential M&A candidates, licensing opportunities or other new revenue streams based on patent data.
Find out if someone is developing something close to/or based on your technology
Find new rights and companies close to you with the Citation Explorer and the Prior Art Explorer. The citation explorer is visualizing all forward citations for your input documents. A forward citation is a document for which one of your input documents has been cited as relevant prior art. The prior art explorer is visualizing all backward citations for your input documents. A backward citation is an earlier published document that is publicly available before the filing of your input document and is sometimes referred to as prior art. Backward citations are categorized by the examiner as X-relevant for novelty, Y-relevant for inventive step and A – general technical background. In this view, you have the possibility to prioritize new hits.
