Patent Landscapes

A patent landscape is not the same as a patentability or novelty search. It provides an overview of your new and old competitors patent activity (published patent applications) over time. Non patent information like Trade Mark applications, papers and social media posts may be included as these give an idea of real products/services to be launched by third parties as well as trends and interest in technologies by customers and companies. In addition to a Patent Landscape Report, its a good idea to set up a weekly Patent Watch in your technology sector, to keep on top of new developments, avoid wasteful NPD, generate new ideas and concepts.
