AUSTIN, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Innography, a CPA Global company, today announced the first-of-its-kind terminal disclaimer relationships feature to help customers such as Kodak improve the accuracy and efficiency of their patent search and analyses processes. Kodak, a long-time Innography client, submitted the feature idea which was voted most popular by attendees of Innography’s 2016 Insights Conference, and is now available in its Fall Release.
“That’s a very difficult thing to do, and Innography was uniquely able to help us do it. This feature will help us minimize potential errors in portfolio management and optimize our business processes around valuable business deals with impressive accuracy and efficiency.”
Tracking terminal disclaimer relationships helps companies minimize patent portfolio management errors by linking patents that are subject to terminal disclaimers. Terminal disclaimers are used in the patent examination process to ensure patentees do not improperly extend the terms of patents through successive patent grants.
“The ability to find and highlight U.S. patents impacted by terminal disclaimers has been an important requirement for us in evaluating transactions involving our IP portfolio,” said Dr. William Fowlkes, Intellectual Property Technology Leader at Eastman Kodak Company. “That’s a very difficult thing to do, and Innography was uniquely able to help us do it. This feature will help us minimize potential errors in portfolio management and optimize our business processes around valuable business deals with impressive accuracy and efficiency.”
Now Innography users can find terminal disclaimed relationships within minutes, without having to read through Image File Wrapper documents or miss key encumbrances on patents.
The Innography Insights 2016 Top Idea award recognizes the top new product idea submitted and voted on by Insights Conference attendees. The winning idea represents the always-blowing winds of industry advancement, in which successful IP service and management companies must continuously maneuver.
“Customer engagement is a core value at Innography, and the foundation of our success as a client-centered business,” said John F. Martin, CEO of Innography. “Working closely with industry leaders like Kodak helps us understand the IP problems they’re trying to solve and the products they need to solve them so, ultimately, we can develop better tools and insights that help drive their business forward.”
