Benchmarking Your Patent Portfolio: The Key to Your Patenting Strategy

Benchmarking Your Patent Portfolio: The Key to Your Patenting Strategy

Watch recording

Listen as our experts discuss the importance of benchmarking your patent portfolio as the key to your patenting strategy.

98% of patent owners use benchmarking to support their patent strategy. Over half, however, complain about the time and expense of benchmarking, and almost the same number state that there is a lack of objective and reliable data.

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear about the results of the LexisNexis® Cipher Benchmarking Survey, conducted in conjunction with IAM. This is the first global study specifically focused on understanding the role of benchmarking in patenting strategy and what best practice has developed.  With more scrutiny around patent portfolios, benchmarking is seen as a way to communicate patenting strategy to CFOs, CTOs and the business more generally.

The webinar covers the four key findings of the report:

  • Benchmarking is mandatory for patenting strategy
  • Understanding your competitors is a fundamental requirement of benchmarking
  • Benchmarking at the technology level is best practice
  • The main obstacles to benchmarking are cost, lack of objective and reliable data and time
