Patentdatenbanken – kostenfrei oder kommerziell

Seit fast 20 Jahren stellen die Patentämter für die Öffentlichkeit kostenfreie Patentdatenbanken bereit, zum Beispiel Espacenet, DEPATISnet und Patentscope. Auch einige Unternehmen (z.B. Google) bieten kostenfreie Patentrecherchen. Daneben gibt es eine Vielzahl an Patentinformationsprodukten, deren Nutzung kostenpflichtig ist. Die Frage, welches Produkt für den eigenen Bedarf das richtige ist, ist gar nicht so leicht zu beantworten.

In einem kurzen Artikel von Richard Garner, LexisNexis, werden einige Argumente aufgeführt für die Nutzung von kostenpflichtigen und von kostenfreien Patentdatenbanken.

Innography’s Patent Market Tracker™

Innography’s Patent Market Tracker™ provides  timely US patent assignment data .

Only 14% of reassignments are actual patent sales, with the balance being securitizations, intra-company transfers, mergers, name changes, and inventor to company reassignments. Innography normalizes company names, harmonizes the legal entities, categorizes conveyance types, and removes false-positives. The resulting set provides  insight into who is buying and selling patents, how strong those patents are, and what danger they represent to the market. The service provides reliable insight into organizations and NPEs that are changing IP strategies by selling or acquiring patents in a given technology area.

Innography is a patent analysis software platform that is notable for the integration of hundreds of business and legal data sources into its patent database, including Dun & Bradstreet financial information, and the PACER database of US litigation.

Broadening Google Patents

Last year, Google launched two improvements to Google Patents: the Prior Art Finder and European Patent Office (EPO) patents. Now they announce the addition of documents from four new patent agencies: China, Germany, Canada, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Many of these documents may provide prior art for future patent applications, and their increased discoverability will improve the quality of patents in the U.S. and worldwide.

Thanks to Google Translate, all patents are available in both their original languages and in English, and you can search across the world’s patents using terms in any of those languages. When there are multiple submission languages, you can move between them with a single click on the tabs at the top of the page.
