Benefits

 

Members join specific Standard Essential Patent (SEP) Zones, where Unified:

  • Prevents unreasonable licensing expectations
  • Deters royalty stacking
  • Helps to stop invalid or non-essential patent assertions.  

This is accomplished through monitoring, landscaping, providing a standard submissions prior art database, top-down royalty analyses, standards essentiality analyses, and USPTO challenges.

Our VETteD (Valid, Essential, Top-Down) process reduces the risk of unsubstantiated SEP demands and enables members to make more accurate FRAND offers in good faith so that they can focus on  rather than litigation.

 

Protects Standards

  • Unique approach rationalizes the standard-licensing process
  • Alters licensors’ assertion leverage, strategies

Proactive

  • Works to deter the largest licensors
  • Rationalizes future assertions

Leverage

  • Consolidates licensee efforts
  • Changes pooled licensor behavior
  • Avoids redundant licensee transaction costs 

OBJECTIVE NON-PARTY ANALYSES ADD VALUE

  • Essentiality analyses provide an independent assessment of problematic patents
  • Market-based solution to market problems

PROFESSIONALLY CURATED ANALYTICS

  • Landscape provides the first independent assessment of a standard-licensing landscape
  • Top-down economic analyses measures total costs for standards

All Inclusive

  • All services included in annual fee
  • Leave whenever you want and keep everything
