Text Comparison Tools for Assisting with Patent Claims Analysis

This post focuses on the use of text comparison tools for analyzing patent claims. Patent analysts, conducting micro-level analysis on collections of patent documents, are taught to focus on the claims within the portfolio. The right to exclude provided by a patent covers the items found and described in the claims and, as such, it can be argued that they are the most critical part of the document. The ability to quickly and accurately compare the text of the claims within a patent family, on a variety of different levels, can help an analyst determine if a collection is broad and far-reaching or limited and potentially straight forward to work around.
