We at Anticipat have a passion for improving patent prosecution by harnessing better data. We want our users to succeed in their own practices with the help of this data.
Better data includes aggregate ex parte appeals data that is relevant to grounds of rejection practitioners face. That is, an Office Action with a particular ground of rejection with specific reasoning has very likely been overturned on appeal in another application. We connect these dots for you.
Better data also includes more general metrics, such as the reversal rates for specific grounds of rejection for a given Examiner, art unit, tech center. It also includes having the arguments and legal authority that the Board has used in overturning specific Examiner rejections.
While much of Anticipat’s initial focus and expertise are on Board data, it is only a piece of the puzzle. Our holistic approach requires data of all facets of patent prosecution, as well as a deep understanding of the context of patent prosecution procedures. We strive to further understand the incentives and behavioral decision-making patterns of all parties involved in the patent system so that proper context of USPTO statistics is understood and applied.
Only by having the best data can you optimally guide your prosecution strategy. With this arsenal of data, you can anticipate expected outcomes and put yourself in the best position for success. We hope you’ll join us on the journey. Click here to get started.
