    5. 5. Service Offerings: Detailed Patent Drafting and Filing Patent Drafting and Filing The scope of a patent application should be broad enough to provide maximum protection to the owner of the patent, while being narrow enough to not infringe on any existing art. Drafting a patent application is not just science and technology, it is an art, which comes with experience. We have a collective experience of drafting nearly 200 patent applications in various domains. We have drafted patent applications to be filed with EPO, USPTO and Indian Patent Office under the able guidance of well qualified attorneys in Europe, US and India. Further, we have international collaborations with experienced attorneys in most of the prominent countries to assist our clients in their international filings and prosecution in the most cost-effective manner. For Indian SMEs and Start-ups To promote IP in India, Department of Information and Technology is running a scheme (SIP-EIT) in which Government pays up to 50% of international patent filing and drafting costs for selected cases. We have the processes in place, and are actively working with various SMEs to get them cost benefits through this scheme.
    6. 6. Service Offerings: Detailed Searching Services Patentability Search Patentability Searches are conducted to check if a particular invention is novel and non-obvious. These searches involve identifying patent and non-patent literature disclosing the features of the particular invention. Such searches are, generally, conducted before incurring any cost into drafting, filing and prosecution of a patent encompassing any invention. Freedom-To-Operate Search Freedom-To-Operate searches help to identify whether a product may possibly be infringing on a patent. Before the launch of a product in a specific jurisdiction (or worldwide), companies generally get a jurisdiction-specific (or worldwide) Freedom-To-Operate search conducted for all the features of the product to avoid any legal hassles of infringement. In a Freedom-To-Operate search, the active patents (pertaining to the relevant technology domain) in jurisdictions where the product is desired to be sold are searched and their claims analyzed to check if they might restrict the Freedom-to-Operate of the product. Validity Search A validity search involves conducting a patent and non-patent literature search to identify prior art literature that might affect the validity of a patent. Such studies are, generally, conducted • To verify whether a patent, which one might be accused of infringing, is valid or not, OR • To check the validity of a competitor’s patent deemed strong
    7. 7. Service Offerings: Detailed Intellectual Property Asset Management Technology Landscape/ Design Around Studies Technology Landscape involves analysis of all the patents pertaining to a technology domain of interest. This study is generally conducted when one wants • To determine The R&D focus, • To venture into a particular technology, • To know of the latest advancements, and • To explore the alternative options for designing around an obstacle This study reveals the main players in the domain, the most sought after markets in that domain, changing market focus, the trend with which the technology is moving, and the technology sub-domains that are less crowded. This study can also be used to identify key patents, Intellectual property creation opportunities by either inventing or licensing / acquiring IP. Competitive Intelligence Competitive Intelligence (CI) is an inseparable component of any company's marketing and R&D strategy. We base the CI on patents/patent applications of the competitors, since patents are the only documents where a company would publish the information related to its technical innovations in detail. CI involves analysis of a defined set of patents of each competitor and derive insights about their strategy, strengths and weaknesses.
    8. 8. Service Offerings: Detailed Claim Charts & Claim Construction Claim Chart Preparation Sagacious prepares claim charts to determine the extent of overlap between one or more claims of a patent with overlapping products. For this purpose, Sagacious conducts searches to identify evidences highlighting the overlap between a product and the claims of the patent. Such projects are, generally, conducted after the client has acquired a patent and is preparing to send letters to the infringers and/or preparing for the court case. Claim Construction Claims construction documents are prepared to draw a boundary based on the scope of the claims. This project includes identifying the substantiating text corresponding to the claims from the full specifications and the file history of the patent, to determine the scope of the claims. Sagacious team has the IP and technical expertise to prepare the claim construction documents.
    9. 9. Project Methodology In our projects, we follow the following methodology: – Developing an understanding of the client’s requirements – Organizing a conference call with the client to discuss the understanding of the team – Conducting preliminary searches/study to prepare a project proposal for client’s approval – On approval by the client, Sagacious starts working on the project – Delivering interim report ( interim deliverable) on ~40% completion of the project for client’s feedback – Incorporating client’s feedback on the interim deliverable, and accordingly completing the whole project – Delivering final report (final deliverable) on 100% completion of the project – Organizing a conference call with the client to discuss the project output – Incorporating client’s suggestions on the final deliverable, if any
