Patent Scouting

Patent scouting helps to identify patents in order to commercialize those in the future. Interesting technological areas are identified (such as cloud computing or LEDs). Then, the patents in this area are identified and the owners of these patents are contacted. With patent scouting, patents can be identified that are strategically important for a company or needed for corporate R&D purposes. The patent scouting provides overview of the whole patent market which helps to realize the market potential of a patent.
