Patently is designed with a focus on intuitive use.
A wide range of information is made available, and yet complexity is kept to a minimum.

The home of the Genetic® family

Patent families can be complex. Two well-known types, the Simple family and the Extended family, each have their own drawbacks. Neither is optimised for review purposes.

Patently’s Genetic® families are INPADOC families built not just by priority relationships but also by linkage of subject-matter, making your reviews far more efficient.

Visuals and Analytics

Patently’s visuals and analytics make the most complex and valuable patent sets simple to understand.

The C-Tree® instantly represents every patent family with an interactive tree visual. The Timelines visual shows the main events (pendency start, grant, and end of life) for each family member.

Patent analytics are available at both the family level and the patent level, highlighting key differences between these analyses.

Standard Essential Patents (SEPs)

Currently being used to analyse GSM, UMTS, LTE and 5G portfolios, Patently’s SEP information is litigation tested, having been approved in court judgements for FRAND rate analysis.

Users can:

  • accurately identify holders of SEP families
  • carry out analyses and counts of “real” SEP families
  • use bespoke filters to get insights into SEP portfolios

Patently® - Intuitive Patent Intelligence

A considerable facet of the case which we presented to the Court in Unwired Planet involved the parsing of the ETSI database into something which more accurately represented the true value of what had been declared by multiple entities as essential. This necessitated organising over 100,000 declared patents into just under 6,000 families and then further rationalising these into various categories so as to come up with a measure of “true value”. This analysis was broadly accepted by the Court as a reasonable attempt to rationalise the database and was preferred over the work carried out by our opponents.

The success which Unwired Planet achieved in that case, success which has been recognised in the IP Community throughout the world, is due in no small part to the work, skill and dedication of the Patently team.

I discovered a crucial patent using Patently’s search process that I could not find in other databases. As a direct result we saved a fortune in R&D costs
