Harvesting Secrets from Patents Using Innography from Dialog
If you're looking for information on companies, people, or technologies, patents are a must-have resource. The publication of a patent application is often the first time that the invention has ever been made known, giving great insight into a company's strategic plans. For example, in a review of Google's patents filed between 2001 and 2007 (and only 13% of those were filed with USPTO), we can see that they were planning not only to develop a Google phone, but also services for TV and video games markets and maybe a device to facilitate supermarket shopping with mobile phones! Moreover, studies have shown that 70-90% of the information in patents is never published anywhere else.

Please join us for a 90-minute session at which you'll learn how to use patent information to find information on companies and products, trend line technologies, identify experts, and locate licensing opportunities.
When: Wednesday, August 18 -- 9:30am - 11:00am EDT with a repeat at 1:30pm - 3:00pm EDT
Where: FEDLINK Training Room, LC John Adams Bldg,  Rm. LA216.
