Strategic Innovation

The global economy continues to aggressively push for advancements in the research, development, and marketing of innovative technologies. Global procurement demand for such advancements in industry, education, security, government, and financial sectors has catapulted the importance of intellectual property in driving the growth of the knowledge economy to unprecedented levels.

M·CAM DOORS™ is the gold-standard patent risk management and analysis tool for determining the unique commercial opportunities and threats of patents issued, and applied for, in the United States and around the world. Using proprietary heuristics to review patents from a statutory and commercial application perspective, M·CAM® has leveraged computational information retrieval and analysis to differentiate counterfeit innovation from the real thing.

Initiatives

When most people consider the patent system, they often think of a structure in which large corporations make money selling products based on proprietary knowledge, licensing the technology to others, or suing others who infringe on the patent rights behind their most cutting-edge products. In recent years, the importance of patents and intellectual property rights as an important variable in the marketplace has come to the forefront of the public consciousness as world leaders declare their country’s lead in the innovation race. In the market, knowledge is power.

All Patents Considered™ is a free information service of M·CAM® that allows members of the public to submit patents for review. Using our intent based communication analysis tools and extensive databases of patent and non-patent literature, we will bring unsurpassed visibility into the actual “novelty” and “non-obviousness” of patents submitted for review.
