IP.com signs up USPTO
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has subscribed to IP.com’s InnovationQ service.

IP.com provides services and solutions that help its clients to publish, aggregate, analyse and monetise their IP.

Its InnovationQ platform is an IP search engine that enables users to determine patentability, identify partners and understand the competitive landscape around their products. Content includes global patent authorities, IP.com’s own proprietary Prior Art Database, innovation disclosures, and other non-patent literature.

The USPTO will leverage InnovationQ to increase the efficiency of its patent examiners and searchers, who will use the service to perform thousands of concept searches each month, according to IP.com.

John Bonin, COO of IP.com, said: “Since our founding 12 years ago, IP.com has held in special regard its relationship with the USPTO and has been pleased to serve commerce through the publication of the Prior Art Database. We are especially proud to expand that relationship with the USPTO subscription to InnovationQ, a service which continues our commitment to consultative discovery and commercialisation solutions for innovative corporations, universities, research institutions and governments around the world.”
