Patent Drafting Automation Software


Abstract/Technology Overview

The actual drafting of patent specifications is the most expensive part in the process of protecting inventions.

Patent applications are highly error-prone because humans are known to make mistakes, especially when they are required to perform tedious duties such as describing large numbers of figures of embodiments.

Our technology provides an Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS)/European Patent Office (EPO)-compliant patent drafting software that automates tasks and maintains consistency throughout patent applications.


Technology Features, Specifications and Advantages

The software provides for reference numerals, term consistency, and takes into account additional embodiments with equivalent features, inclusive combinations and permutations of technical features of these embodiments.

Picture claims and subclaims are automatically derived from the description of embodiments.

The process is currently driven by a deterministic method that is subject to a patent application.

Interfaces have been provided to include industry standard libraries for providing equivalent alternatives of the generated embodiments.


Potential Applications

The innovation targets companies that file large numbers of patent applications as well as practitioners that draft large numbers of patent specifications.

Practitioners receive online assistance by eliminating errors during drafting patent applications. This ensures a consistent quality of the drafted patent applications.

The innovation also provides different filing formats of patent application for various countries, based on the same disclosure.


Customer Benefit

The technology can facilitate drafting of more patent applications in lesser time as compared to traditional methods. 

Practitioners can focus on high-value work by using patent drafting tools that take care of tedious duties. 

Get the most out of what you spend for IP, with efficient drafting that deliver low-error applications that receive less office actions than the average. 

Automatically drafted patents also contain much more valuable subject matter to cover as much protection as possible.
