Why the number of patents is so low in Estonia ? Why many of our inventions are owned by someone else and Who is the looser ? Looking back we can see that it took 5 years, after our independence was declared in 1991, till we got our 1st patent registered. Why so long ? It seems to me that there is a long lasting tradition not to support inventors in our country. Well, we can say that these characteristics apply to the most of the Ex-Soviet block and current patent… Continue

To my interest, Implicit Networks is again in the news. They have filed yet another patent infringement
lawsuit against the big shots.
Though they have already sued many in the past like Intel, AMD, Sun Microsystems, Raza microelectronics, Real Networks and Microsoft but it seems like they do not want to stop. To add more to their defendant's list , this time, they have picked Red Hat and VMWare as their defendants.… Continue

I choose the theme for this week’s update post, “What Can a Worldwide Patent Community Do for Me?” because I know some of you who have laughed out loud at my weekly updates while thinking, “it’s impossible to build an engaged community of IP professionals. We can barely eat lunch during a typical business day and you want us to get involved in Intellogist’s IP community. You are out of your mind!”
Just for a moment, I ask that you suspend reality and think about Intellogist from a… Continue

We should lobby the American Psychiatric Society for the inclusion of a
new entry in the next edition of the DSM: Patent Derangement Disorder
(PDD). A commonly-occurring distortion of thought processes, PDD sweeps
through online communities several times a year. The symptoms are
familiar: hysterical blog posts, breathless comments, snide tweets. The
only cure is better education about patents and how they are applied.
Here at Intellogist HQ, we’ve made it our… Continue

Hello all! We’re still buried under snow here in the DC area, but I’m
nice and cozy with a mug of cocoa. I wanted to post a short update
today about a common problem that afflicts our patent searching efforts
– the need for (and sometimes the lack of) effective keyword
highlighting. There are lots of nice commercial products out there that
offer very fancy keyword highlighting (e.g.… Continue

In case you missed it, the Washington DC area is covered in snow. I know that blizzard-like conditions are commonplace for our friends in the North but in the DC area virtually everything grinds to a halt when
snow blankets the community. Federal offices close, schools close,
we’re lucky to have electricity, and driving with local, inexperienced
winter drivers is akin to playing Russian Roulette.
But, the Intellogist Team made a promise to share our… Continue

We’re starting our new Intellogist blog with a call to action for the patent community! We’ve been pondering the decision to start a blog for a while, but recently an event occurred which made us realize the time was right. On Friday January 15th, we received the following message from the Boliven Innovation Network team:
After approximately a year of beta product releases and extensive user feedback, the Board of the company has determined that it no longer makes good business… Continue
