I recently received an email for the admin department of Boliven (http://www.boliven.com/) that they are going to close there website during this week.

To me, it was a fantastic website. I often used it for my patent analysis as there were few a very interesting tools in it . The coverage of the database was also quite comprehensive and personally i really like the auto generation of flash graphs.

Moreover, it was a good website for networking as well. One can locate any member according to technology or college or school.

Well, if a website who has attracted 100,000 unique monthly visitors and over 6,000 registered members was doing pretty good. But founder and President of Bolevin, Thomas D Lehrman, has revoked the website as he said that they have fallen short of operational and financial goals.

Its sad. Hope to find similar substitute soon !

If you have something to share, please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi Bikram,

 

Boliven is up and running again - There is a blog article about Boliven on ipInsiders, here: 30 day free trial on BolivenPRO patent search platform

 

One part of the article says "Founded in 2007, purchased by CambridgeIP in 2010 and subsequently substantially upgraded by CambridgeIP, Boliven.com is a comprehensive and easy to use patent search platform".

 

Cheers,

 

Mariana
