Darts-ip is pleased to partner with the Berlin-based analytics firm, IPlytics, to provide IP practitioners with an unparalleled level of access to the world of Standard- essential Patents (SEPs).

From prosecution to FRAND licensing and litigation, this new partnership will enable patent professionals to fully leverage Darts-ip’s legal tech capabilities and global court and office records database with IPlytics’ innovative analytics software. Together Darts-ip and IPlytics will provide a complete overview of all SEP-related activities, allowing users to easily visualise market trends, identify crucial factors and track in real-time the latest legal provisions.

“We always strive to give our users the best tools to support legal and business strategies on a global scale. Information on standards is extremely valuable in today’s connected world and as a leader in their field, IPlytics is the perfect partner to help us provide global insights on SEPs.” – Mihnea Hanganu, Darts-ip Head of Data and Analytics

The technical integration and rollout will be announced at a later date. Immediately following the rollout a new filter will be made available to Darts-ip users, enabling them to refine their results based solely on SEP activity.

“Connectivity standards such as 5G, WiFi or video coding will soon be integrated in areas beyond the smart phone or computer industry. Standards are crucial for systems to communicate. Standardized technologies such as 5G will soon impact markets such as automotive, energy, entertainment or also the medical space. As of today, 5G alone is subject to over 40k declared Standard essential patents and companies worldwide are in need to understand and track which patents to license-in when using the 5G standard. Combing data on litigation details and standard essential patents provides a more transparent understanding of how to shape a good IP strategy in industries where standards matter.” – Tim Pohlmann, CEO IPlytics

Prior to the technical integration, Darts-ip and IPlytics will release a unique report in the first half of 2019 exploring the SEP activity around the world in order to identify global trends, key players, market drivers and never before seen statistics.
