What are my core and
non-core patents?

Make informed decisions on which patents to keep 
and how to extract value from non-core patents

Separating Core from Non-Core Patents is a Critical Part of Your Intellectual Property (IP) Strategy

Maintenance fees can add up quickly – particularly on large portfolios – and are a justification for systematically taking stock and potentially abandoning any patents. Chipworks can help:

  • Make alternative strategy decisions for non-core patents
  • Identify your star patents that protect your present and future business areas
  • Identify patents that are surplus to your core strategy, potentially costing you unnecessary maintenance fees today
  • Find the surplus patents that may have greater value to someone else

Identifying non-core patents may also lead to attractive opportunities for generating new revenues. While a patent may have little to no value in your portfolio, it may be very valuable to another owner; patent value is always situational and context is everything. Let’s find out.

The Chipworks Approach

To separate core patents from non-core, we define sorting criteria tailored to your IP strategy and goals. We use a number of corporate inputs and specifically designed tools leveraged by our broad market, technical, and patent knowledge. This enables us to:

  • Create a strategic framework to help rationalize patents against your current and future IP and/or business goals
  • Efficiently separate core from non-core patents to ensure your portfolio is fully aligned with your strategy
  • Provide options and strategies from non-core patents
