Through Kidon IP® we can offer the following services:
IP and Standards White-spacing to guide research for short and long term productization and future IP value capture
Patents and technical standards do not only disclose the inventions claimed or how to practice the relevant technical standard. To those that know how to look, patents and standards tell a story of technical innovation. The point to where industry, the academy, and society are heading. The astute observer will be able to map these trends and correlate them to both broader business and market trends as well as specific companies’ capability. These observations can then be transformed into a white space analysis that identifies areas ripe for short term research investments that will lead to longer term business and IP growth.
David L. Cohen, P.C. and the Kidon IP® team, using a White Space analysis, can help your company develop a frugal and effective innovation strategy designed to maximize short term business advantage and develop a valuable portfolio of blocking IP.
