What Does “Litigation Cases” Show Me?

Provides you with an insight into how litigious a certain area of technology is with:

  • A breakdown of past cases to check the link between case outcome and patent type.
  • Litigation timeline to check the frequency of litigation associated to that field.
  • Most aggressive plaintiffs showing the 10 most litigious organisations.
  • Most asserted patents to see the patents that pose the highest threat of litigation.

Litigated Concepts

The chart shows the keywords and concepts associated with patents that have been asserted in litigation. The size of each segment represents the number of cases associated with the keyword or concept (Max 10,000 Patents used).

Helpful for: Understanding the technology areas associated to patents that are typically involved in assertion. This highlights levels of litigation risk of holding patents in certain technology spaces.

Case Outcomes

The chart shows a breakdown of the outcomes of cases that have ended (US/GB data).

Helpful for: understanding whether there is a correlation between case outcomes and the type of patent that is involved. This could indicate technology that is vulnerable to lawsuits, and therefore the risks associated that should be avoided. Dive into the patent to understand further details on how cases have been resolved, such as individual case activities and judges involved.

Litigation Timeline

The graph shows patent litigation case trend over time. Cases where the searched organization is plaintiff is displayed in blue, whereas cases where the searched organization is defendant is highlighted in red (US/CN/TW/JP data)

Helpful for: determining the frequency of litigation. Whether the organization has had to defend their organization from cases, or the frequency of cases they’ve bought to other organizations as a plaintiff.

Most Sued Defendants

The graph shows the parties being sued by the organization for patent infringement (US/CN/TW/GB/JP data).

Helpful for: understanding what organizations are arguably infringing on this technology, and therefore worthwhile monitoring to ensure these organizations do not infringe on your technology.

 

Most Aggressive Plaintiffs

The graph shows the parties being sued by the organization for patent infringement (US/CN/TW/GB/JP data).

Helpful for: understanding what organizations may be highly litigious and the risk involved with filing for patents within a specific technology area. This can give an indication of the types of patents that are typically involved in assertion.

 

Defendant And Plaintiff Breakdown

Helpful for: understanding which side of a litigation case the company usually sits on. Whether the organization has had to regularly defend their organization from cases, or frequently bought litigation cases to other organizations as a plaintiff.

 

Most Asserted Patents

Identify the patents that have been asserted in court which have been involved in the highest number of cases (US/CN/TW/GB/JP data).

Helpful for: identifying the most litigious patents associated with the organization and the litigation risks associated with patents in a particular technology area.
