Patent Rating Results

Patent Checkup uses a Patent Rating scale “A” through “D”. A-rated patents represent patents with the highest value, B-rated patents have medium value, C-rated patents have low value and D-rated patents are unlikely to have value. Once again, Blackberry Ltd. ranks top of the list with 11 A-rated patents, more than twice the national average!

    Patents are granted irrespective if they have value or not

    Many patents have no value either because the inventions are worthless or because the patent is legally handicapped even though it has business value. Securing valuable patents need not require more effort or cost than obtaining invaluable ones. Prepare for building a valuable patent portfolio starting from filing an application, during prosecution as well as after the patent issues. By applying best practices consistently across a portfolio, owners can create valuable patents and patent portfolios.
