Building a High Value Patent Portfolio Where Strength Meets Quality
To a large extent the meaning of the terms patent strength and patent quality depend on your viewpoint. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has historically employed a variety of quality metrics, but is a patent that is considered high quality from the perspective of the USPTO a strong patent? Is it a patent that the industry would view as a high quality patent? Is it a patent that would be viewed to be a valuable patent?
From the patent owner’s perspective it is virtually impossible to divorce patent quality and strength from patent value. But when you set out to create the asset in the first place it is often impossible to know what the value of the underlying technology will be. Thus, there necessarily must be a different analysis when one is creating a patent portfolio versus when one is acquiring patent assets after the fact.
