Practice Insight launches new patent search software


Practice Insight has launched new software to allow patent owners and attorneys to manage and monetise patents.

The software, Citation Eagle, allows users to search patent portfolios in a database of more than 1.5 billion records.

It will eliminate any reliance on third parties to manually monitor portfolios, and reduce the time that professionals have to spend to extract information from traditional patent search databases.

Thomas Haines, founder and managing director of Practice Insight, said: “Citation Eagle’s customised alert functionality considers opportunity and timelines for opposition or infringement procedures, enabling law firms to generate in-house business and licensing opportunities for their clients.”

“Additionally, patent owners can save thousands of dollars in possible litigation costs by being informed of possible patent infringement well ahead of key patent deadline dates.”
