Patent Data Systems

Patent data from the USPTO data can help an organization gain contextual insight and unlock value of R&D efforts, evaluate the competitive landscape, and forecast disruptive innovative technologies. Ripple Software offers SaaS USPTO database access in PostgreSQL and MySQL variants complete with a secure SSL connection and total data privacy.

RSRC patent dataset includes U.S. patent coverage from 1976 for granted patents and 2001 for patent applications, as well as current Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) data, full CPC, International, and US classification systems, disambiguated assignee data, and patent metrics such as forward and backward citations, and TCT. Adjacent data can be added to the database to suit your needs.

The data can be compiled as bibliographic (front-page) data or full-text data for natural language processing abstracts, descriptions, and claims.  USPTO bulk-data has been verified with 99.9% complete accuracy and USPTO API products or European Patent Office (EPO) Open Patent Service (OPS), and can be integrated to meet any needs.

Databases are available for MySQL or PostgreSQL, and you can read from the bulk datasets using any compatible local database client, or access data by API or web-interface. The Restful API allows passing values as parameters to return any statistical algorithms.

Do you want to assess the value of an individual patent?

Determining a patent’s true value depends on many things.  Fundamentally, the financial value of the patent is determined by the market value of the underlying technology it protects, the licence fees its owner can obtain, or its resale value.  This information is private and proprietary, so researchers have done extensive research on patent indicators for outsiders to gain insight about a particular patent or group of patents.  Ripple Software’s Patent Value System  displays the most important patent indicators for a patent, ranked against other patents in various classifications, and displays the important details.  Try it out to assess an individual patent!
