IP.com, a provider of services and solutions that help clients publish, aggregate, analyze, and monetize their intellectual property, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has subscribed to its InnovationQ(R) service.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office will leverage InnovationQ to increase the efficiency of its patent examiners and patent searchers, who will use the service to perform thousands of concept searches each month.
IP.com's InnovationQ is an intellectual property discovery engine for decision-makers and subject matter experts--not just intellectual property professionals. Using the service, clients can qualify ideas for patentability, identify innovation partners, and determine the competitive landscape around their products. InnovationQ content includes global patent authorities, IP.com's own proprietary Prior Art Database(TM), innovation disclosures, and other non-patent literature.
InnovationQ features the unique and rich concept indexing of Semantic Gist(R). While most search engines scan documents for keywords, Semantic Gist recognizes concepts. Users can copy and paste entire paragraphs of content into the search engine and it will return results that previously only would have been found by searching manually.
"Since our founding twelve years ago, IP.com has held in special regard its relationship with the USPTO and has been pleased to serve commerce through the publication of the Prior Art Database," said John Bonin, chief operating officer, IP.com. "We are especially proud to expand that relationship with the USPTO subscription to InnovationQ, a service which continues our commitment to consultative discovery and commercialization solutions for innovative corporations, universities, research institutions and governments around the world."
Headquartered in Fairport, N.Y., IP.com is a privately owned company dedicated to delivering custom solutions to its clients to help publish, aggregate, analyze, and monetize their technical intellectual property. IP.com's exclusive solutions combine smarter searches (Semantic Gist), smarter people (its researchers and analysts team of engineers and scientists), and smarter solutions (InnovationQ for Universities and Corporations).
