Quility Insight by PatentCloud

To find proof of the validity problems of the patents, you need to conduct a thorough prior art search. Quality insights is the most helpful and effective tool for this. With Quality Insights, you can decide whether you need to do a further analysis of a patent, based on the comprehensive Overview, which gives you a quick summary of the patent’s status, prosecution history, and post-grant proceedings. If the patent is worth digging into, Quality Insights also provides Family Prior Art, Second Degree Art, and Semantic Prior Art, enabling you to collect the relevant prior art that will serve as strong evidence. You can also utilize File Wrapper Search to search by keywords, if there is something specific that you want to target.

With this substantive collection of information from Quality Insights, you will be able to write a very strong response letter that includes a complete invalidity analysis of the patents the patent owner has used against you. By doing so, you can decrease the risk of being sued.
