Dependably Monitor Your Patent Application Status
Director of Legal Services at a Large Law Firm
PAIR Watch can be configured to send email alerts to multiple individuals in the patent monitoring workflow based on the needs of your organization. In addition to monitoring your clients’ patent applications, you may also want to monitor clients’ competitor’s patent applications to predict their future market strategy, identify infringing technology, or find new avenues for growth. Checks can be performed monthly, weekly, daily, or even twice a day. Affordable and convenient, PAIR Watch enables fail-proof enterprise-level monitoring capabilities.
When you need to watch a large number of applications you can easily upload a spreadsheet with up to 1,000 application numbers. Pricing is simple, predictable, and affordable―based on the frequency of alerts. The Subscription tab provides up-to-date information on projected costs and the account balance.
Why does a Patent Status Matter?
Patent status is important to pay attention to as an inventor, applicant, and business. When submitting new patent applications, a prior art search can show what ideas are already in process that may be similar to yours. As an inventor, having a patent that can be found in an active application status can also help others to see your idea and deter them from developing a similar patent or idea. And while not providing actual legal security, having a patent in a pending status can discourage theft. As a business, knowing what patents are currently in an active status paints a clearer picture of the organization’s assets.
