The companies that abandon most US and EPO patents

In the latest issue of IAM magazine – available for subscribers to view online from today – Matthew Beers and Maria Lazarova of Ocean Tomo take a deep-dive look at patent abandonments data from both the USPTO and EPO.

This blog article will take a sneak peek at the findings relating to IP owners and which of them abandon the most patents at both agencies.

Some statistics on Patent Litigation

Lex Machina Releases 2014 Patent Litigation Year in Review

Lex Machin released its second annual Patent Litigation Year in Review report, providing unparalleled depth of insight into the major patent litigation trends of 2014 and the forces behind them.

The report paints a picture of a turbulent, if historic, year for patent litigation. Congress declared patent reform legislation a top priority and the U.S. Supreme Court weighed in on a record total of six patent casesand handing down its first decision in more than 30 years on computer-based patentable subject matter in Alice v. CLS Bank.

Meanwhile, patent litigation filing trends took a surprising turn: the second half of 2014 saw a dip in the number of new district court case filings, while Patent Trial and Appeal Board activity swung upward compared to recent years.

WIPO studies on Intellectual property & socio-economic development

There is great interest in better understanding the effects of IP protection in developing countries, both on specific measures of economic performance and on the economic development process more broadly.

National policymakers in developing countries often lack credible empirical guidance in tailoring their IP systems to national capacities and needs. This is in considerable contrast to developed countries, where national IP offices, other branches of government, and academic economists have produced insightful evidence on the economic implications of different dimensions of IP protection.

WIPO Development Agenda Recommendations 35 and 37 mandate a series of economic studies to narrow the knowledge gap facing policymakers in developing economies. These country studies seek to contribute to a better understanding of the effects of IP protection on social and economic performance. Each country study is intended to address topics related to three broad themes: domestic innovation, the international and national diffusion of knowledge, and institutional features of the IP system and their economic implications.

Inovia Releases 2014 Report on Global Patent Trends

Now in its fifth year, inovia’s U.S. Global Patent & IP Trends Indicator has become a go-to resource for identifying the trends having the greatest impact on the foreign filing strategies of U.S. patentees. Key findings of the survey include:

  • Almost all (96%) of the respondents used the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) for some or all of their foreign filings in 2013.
  • Only 33% of the respondents are working on a reduced IP budget going into 2014.
  • About 15 % of the responding companies outsourced their foreign patent filing needs in 2013.


Gobal Intellectual Property Index (Taylor Wessing)

Taylor Wessing launched the fourth Global Intellectual Property Index (GIPI4). The Global Intellectual Property Index is the most comprehensive assessment of how intellectual property regimes around the world compare with each other. This 4th edition assesses the regimes of 36 jurisdictions, using more than 14,000 jurisdiction assessments from senior industry figures, balanced with 74 objective factors.

Based on an analysis and an array of published empirical data, the GIPI provides an assessment of the best and worst jurisdictions to obtain, exploit, enforce and attack particular types of IP.
