Questel Patent Value indexes now Live
Questel’s latest Patent Value Indexes are now accessible in live analysis. Users no longer need to save their analysis to benefit from such indexes.
Platinum analysis users are now able to use these new indexes in the settings menu:
Here is a quick reminder of Questel’s Patent Value Indexes:
Score based on the number of forward citations received by the analyzed patent families, corrected to account for age and technical domain.
Results are normalized so that an average patent family has a score of 1, making it easy to identify whether the portfolio you’re analyzing scores above or below the average.
Score based on the GDP of the countries where the analyzed patent families are granted or pending.
Countries with expired patent rights are kept in the calculation, as long as they were at one point granted. Questions like « Does my competitor tend to protect in a larger overall market than me? » can thus be answered.
Example 1 – patent family which was pending in the US but never granted and has now lapsed would not be included in the calculation.
Example 2 – patent family which was previously granted in the US but has since expired would be included in the calculation.
Single score which combines the results of impact and market strategy indexes.
This new metric gives you a combined score which is available for both alive and dead patents. You can use it to answer questions like « Are my competitors patents generally stronger than mine? », « What were the strongest patents in my results set? »
Score based on the number of forward citations and the GDP of the countries where the analyzed patent families are granted or pending and remaining life of those patents.
The calculation is weighted based on the maximum possible remaining life of the patents within the family. Results are normalized so that an average scoring patent will have a patent value score of 1, making it easy to identify whether the patents you are analyzing score below or above average.
The sum of all the patent value scores for all patents in the analyzed portfolio.
The portfolio containing the most patent families is not always the best. In the above example, Firm H has a smaller portfolio but a far better value than Firm C.
