Patent citation analysis is a bibliometric method used to analyze forward and backward citations of a single patents or a group of patents. The analysis report visually represents relationship between patents in terms of cited patents or citing patents.

Patent citation analysis gives an idea of the value of a particular patent that a client wishes to acquire. The number of times a patent is cited and the number of applicants who have cited the patent are key indicators in deciding a value of a patent through citation analysis. Though doubts are being raised about the use of citation analysis to assess the quality of a patent, citation analysis can be a key to identify prominent players in the field including potential competitors, partners and/or infringers. Based on the analysis, the client can plan and design the direction of their R&D activities related to that technology. Citation analysis provides a snapshot view of the direction of competitors’, activity, and also highlights licensing and other business opportunities.

Evidence of use (EoU) analysis is valuable in proving that a product or a service infringes different claims of valid patent(s). The analysis report can also be utilized for asserting one’s patent rights. EoU reports provide extra leverage to negotiations for licensing or other business transactions.

Further, EoU analysis can be used to refine existing patent portfolios by identifying strong patents that are translated into products of real commercial value and weak patents.

At Prometheus, we use product literature, information from the company website, photographs of the product, press releases or evidences of any other public disclosure of the product to compare the potential infringer’s product with the patented product. The EoU report comprises of a claim chart that compares the claim elements with technical specifications of the product.

Patent Filing

Patent application filing services: Prometheus has filed more than 600 patent applications with the Indian patent office and more than 100 international applications under the PCT route since its humble inception in 2007.

Prometheus Patent Services Pvt. Ltd. provides seamless solutions for filing of international and foreign intellectual property applications. Our solutions are a coalescence of our technical expertise and legal prowess which enables us to deliver solutions that are customized to suit our clients’ requirements. International filings not only require great caution but also enormous earnestness in order to align the time of filings with the clients’ commercial interests. Our team of experienced attorneys and patent consultants have the knack of delivering filing solutions that are formulated keeping our clients’ best interests in mind.

We have aligned ourselves with the legal requirements of several jurisdictions to provide a hassle-free, state of the art filing experience for both national and international patent applications. Our team has a niche for protecting inventions in several countries through the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) route and the Convention route. Additionally, we have associated ourselves with leading intellectual property rights attorneys from around the world to deliver filing solutions that are unhindered by the geographic boundaries.

PCT Filing: One question that may come to one’s mind is why should one take the PCT route, when filing can be done individually in each country? Well, firstly, each country has its own jurisdiction and filing separately in each country can be a daunting task in the absence of a framework and professional expertise. Secondly, keeping track of all the multi-lingual information trail that would be generated in this process can also be tedious.

Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) facilitates an umbrella filing for a patent application in its member states. A resident of any of the member states is eligible to file a PCT application with their own country designated as receiving office or directly with WIPO. At this stage, an applicant may designate countries in which he seeks to protect his invention. This initiates an applicant’s PCT journey and the application is considered to have entered its international phase. Post-entry into the international phase, the patent application becomes eligible for subjection to a patent search. However examination is optional and is conducted on request. On completion of search and examination, the application enters its national phase in the 30th or 31st month from date of filing of PCT application. The period of entering the national phase varies from state to state. During the national phase, a PCT application is proceeded in accordance with the rules of the concerned designated state.

Though formulated for convenience, PCT route can be challenging in terms of understanding the jurisdiction of each state. Moreover, adapting the international application to fulfill the requirements of each designated state on the onset of national phase is also crucial. Prometheus neutralizes these challenges by providing guidance and advices that are customized to suit the judicial requirements of the designated states.

Our team of experts helps our clients in international phase filings, national phase filings, interpretation of the international search and examination reports, office actions, fulfilling procedural requirements of designated states etc. Our state of the art expertise provides a hassle-free PCT experience during both national and international phase.

Convention Filing: Intellectual property is geographically limited, thereby making widespread protection essential. Applications can be filed under Paris Convention for protecting patents, trademarks, industrial designs, utility models, service marks, trade, geographical indications and the repression of unfair competition. After filing a priority application in the inventor’s or applicant’s country, one has up to 12 months to file directly into one or more foreign countries where one seeks to protect his IP. The procedural requirements differ from state to state and the timeline of 12 months cannot be extended.

The convention route can be taken for filing in countries that are not members of the Patent Cooperation Treaty. It is also economically more viable to take the convention route when protection is sought only in few countries.

Prometheus has streamlined the procedural requirements for both PCT and Convention filing for a hassle free filing experience. Our team has expertise to provide guidance and support at each step of the international filing routes. No matter which route you choose, we have the experience and niche to guide your application effectively throughout.

Prometheus provides:

Patent filing in India: Our patent agents assist our clients in filing ordinary applications, divisional applications or patent of additions with the Indian patent office. If the application discloses biological material or sequence listings, we ensure that the necessary formalities are met for the application to be processed successfully.

Response To Office Action

Patent applicants should give a timely response to the restriction requirements, non-final office actions and final office actions received from the patent offices for the prosecution of the patent application to continue. Other official letters such as notice to file missing parts, notice to file corrected application papers, notice of allowance etc. also require a timely and fitting response. Prometheus responds to the patent examiner’s objections or rejections put forth in office actions in a competent manner with sound arguments and/or necessary amendments. Our team of technology specialists can assist response to an office action by providing the technological arguments needed to counter the examiner’s query related to the technology. The domain knowledge of our team had come in handy for differentiating and distinguishing the patent application under prosecution from the prior art cited by the examiners and accordingly amend the claims.

We also assist our clients in filing requests for reconsideration, requests for continued examination (RCE) or an appeal against a rejection, wherever applicable.

Patent Proofreading

Prometheus offers proofreading services for patent applications and issued patents as well. We take due care in proofreading the claims, wherein we check for claim dependency, antecedent basis of claimed elements etc. We also take care in checking other formality requirements of the patent office and ensure that all the reference numbers of the diagrams are correctly incorporated in the specification.

Proof reading patent applications thoroughly before submitting to the patent office avoids unnecessary receipt of official letters from the patent office such as receipt of notices to file corrected application, notices to file missing parts etc. thus saving cost and time. It also minimizes the risk of objections/rejections being raised by the examiner because of the errors.

Issued patents being legal documents, should be devoid of any errors especially in claims section. The errors are made either by the prosecuting office itself or by the patentee. At Prometheus, we proofread issued patents meticulously to ensure that there are no mistakes in the documents. We ensure that the issued patent correctly incorporates all the amendments that were done in the specification, claims and drawings. If any mistakes are found we assist clients in preparing a certificate of correction.

IP Recordal and Data Verification

Transfer in the ownership of IP assets that occur during business transactions such as acquisition, merger etc. need to be recorded in national and foreign patent offices from which patent(s) are obtained. In the same way a change in address, change in address for service etc. also needs to be recorded in different patent offices. This is a highly complex task especially if it involves a substantial IP portfolio. If not done meticulously and within the stipulated time period, it can have serious repercussions for the IP right holder vis-a-vis enforceability of the IP rights.

Prometheus has a team of experienced professionals who effectively manage such IP recordals including data verification, where required. Our paralegals verify the chain of title where the IP assets have passed through the hands of multiple entities. The necessary documents such as evidentiary documents, powers of attorney etc. are prepared and communicated with local agents for translation and other requirements. This is followed by filing at the respective patent offices. We track the status of IP recordals till they are accepted and updated by the patent offices.

We update IP records as and when communications are received from the patent office(s) and also efficiently maintain them in the docketing system facilitating easy retrieval.

  • Experienced professionals
  • Automated and monitored alerts
  • Exceptional quality at affordable cost

File History Analysis

File history of an IP asset refers to the legal record of communications between the patent office and the applicant/representative that had occurred during the prosecution of the application prior to issuance or rejection of the IP right. It contains statements made by the applicant and record of interviews between the applicant and the patent office.

With respect to patents, file history reports reflect the evolution of patent claims during the course of prosecution and can be insightful for litigation purposes, due diligence, licensing, business transactions etc. File history analysis fishes out relevant prior art references cited by the examiner and is useful for infringement proceedings. A clear idea on the scope of the claims is obtained during the analysis.

At Prometheus, our technology specialists and paralegals analyze the file wrappers diligently to offer succinct and comprehensive file history reports to the clients.
