Aistemos’s patent intelligence software, Cipher, now includes MaxVal’s international patent litigation data
In addition to the existing US litigation data, Cipher users now have access to litigation data for China, Germany, France, Japan, UK, and the Netherlands. “As patents become more important to more companies in more sectors, transparency and accessibility of international litigation data is becoming an essential part of the picture. Europe and Asia are key jurisdiction on the global IP stage and MaxVal is to be congratulated for building this database,” said Nigel Swycher, CEO and founder of Aistemos.
This dataset will be of interest to all companies who are managing their litigation risk, whether through IP insurance, organizations such as LOT Network, or strategic planning. “IP litigation data is an important component for understanding the risk when offering our IP insurance, and we are delighted that more international data is now available,” said Erik Alsegard, IP insurance lead at CFC Underwriting in London.
“The NPE problem has not gone away as they still file 2,000 new lawsuits per year in the US. On top of that, we are seeing more of this type of litigation in Europe and Asia. It’s great that Cipher is making use of this additional data to provide transparency,” added Ken Seddon, CEO of LOT Network.
“MaxVal and Aistemos have been collaborating since 2016,” says Jonathan Garfinkel, JD, Patent Attorney with MaxVal, “and we are excited to work with Aistemos to provide Cipher users transparency into this difficult-to-obtain litigation content.”
