Patent Litigation Powered by Analytics

What is patent litigation?

Patent litigation or patent prosecution is a legal process where applicants negotiate with a patent office for the grant of a patent. This process involves a series of interactions between an applicant or their representative, and a patent office with respect to one or more of the applicant’s inventions. The patent prosecution process is crucial for inventors and businesses alike. It is through this process that inventions are protected by law, providing the patent holder with the exclusive right to the commercial use of the underlying technology.
