M·CAM, Inc. releases Patently Obvious® on the intellectual property analysis of Kodak
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - September 23, 2011 - M·CAM, Inc. released its Patently Obvious® report today on Intellectual Property Analysis of Kodak
A commercial analysis, using the M·CAM proprietary unstructured data mining algorithm, was performed on the digital imaging portion of the Kodak patent portfolio, which revealed at least 31% of the portfolio are impaired and unlikely to be of commercial value. This impairment comes from patent filing carelessness and other breakdowns in patent quality – not necessarily from a lack of innovation. Further, an analysis was performed using the M·CAM DOORS™ platform on the commercial ecosystem surrounding the digital imaging patents, which identified the top twenty entities that may find these properties to be of interest.
M·CAM's Patently Obvious® is a weekly report providing visibility into potentially unconsidered alternatives, including art in the public domain, to patent holdings across a variety of technology areas.
