Understand Shifting IP Markets

Issue: IP markets are constantly shifting, making it difficult to monitor the impact these changes have on an IP strategy.

Solution: ktMINE provides robust analytics and connected IP data to quickly predict and better understand these shifting IP markets.

Implication: Inadequately tracking and understanding trends increase the risk of being unprepared for changes to IP markets.

Support the Value of IP

Issue: Common IP valuation approaches rely on past experience, rules of thumb, or antiquated methodologies that are not defensible.

Solution: ktMINE enables an accurate and defensible IP valuation through the most comprehensive licensing and royalty rate data available.

Implication: Insufficient support of IP value compromises outcomes of licensing, acquisitions, and litigation.

Evaluate Company IP Profiles

Issue: IP portfolio analyses tend to only focus on patents, ignoring other IP activities that impact a company’s IP strategy.

Solution: ktMINE gives instant access to a company’s comprehensive IP portfolio, including IP filing, transaction, licensing and litigation activity.  

Implication: Failing to evaluate a comprehensive IP portfolio results in an incomplete and inaccurate representation of a company’s IP strategy.

Market Environment

In today’s competitive landscape, intellectual property intelligence is critical for transaction strategies and valuation. Emerging and intersecting technology landscapes are becoming increasingly complex. New regulations, legislation, and case law are contributing to a dynamic environment. Gone are the days where relying on a single facet of intelligence is enough.

Additionally, there is mounting pressure to be an IP intelligence expert while providing cost-efficient support. Currently, IP data research uses many sources and tools. This drives up costs, decreases efficiency, and adds hundreds of hours to the time required to complete the research. Further, without linked data, it is almost impossible to make the connections necessary to gain crucial insights.
