Patent mining with TechInsights can find high quality patents with the potential to make money through licensing or divestiture.
TechInsights’ patent mining service is a staged approach that prioritizes your patents. Specialized in-house patent and technology experts leverage our product and industry knowledge to identify your most valuable patents in the context of a specific IP strategy.
Using a combination of commercial and proprietary tools, we efficiently sift through portfolios, sometimes containing thousands of patents, with the goal of finding a sufficient number of potentially valuable patents relevant to any given engagement before deploying technical analysts to assess the potential to detect use of the claimed invention.
The heart and soul of the TechInsights’ approach is the ability to match patents to products and deliver evidence of use in high-revenue markets.
We look at the technology used in commercially available products and match a patent, or groups of patents, to current and future high-revenue sectors at the market, company, and product levels.
Our patent mining process is:
Sort patents, for example by technology or market area
Prioritize sets of patents relative to your goal to identify which ones to assess in detail and prioritize them
Review by subject matter experts to provide an assessment of the patent’s suitability for your goals

Microsoft recently launched a new service to their cloud customers offering protection against patent infringement lawsuits. TechInsights was given early access to the patents being made available to Microsoft’s
customers via the Azure IP Advantage program. We used our IP analytics capabilities to evaluate some important metrics of the portfolio and compare it to a selection of Microsoft’s leading competitors.
