Anaqua launches new strategy tool

Anaqua has debuted its new patent intelligence data tool, Forward Examiner Rejections, which will enable patent owners to identify rights that are potentially being infringed.

The tool will allow patent owners to discover which of their rights are blocking new inventions from competitors, which may be useful in cross-licensing, and which may be fenced in by competitors and so may require additional continuations.

Forward Examiner Rejections will be available through Anaqua’s AcclaimIP.

Matt Troyer, director of patent analytics at Anaqua, said the new capability will give patent owners and their law firms the information they need to “assess which patents have strategic value to the business and which may no longer be relevant”.

Anaqua CEO, Bob Romeo, added: “Our new functionality is a game changer for the IP market.”

“There are many patent search and analytics tools in the market, but AcclaimIP is the only product available today that can tell you how your IP is blocking competitors’ IP activity.”

“Plus it’s relevant to all patent filers around the world because any individual or organisation that files in the US can take advantage of the insight that comes from our Forward Examiner Rejection data.”
