How IPwe for SEP can contribute to eliminate frictions on SEP

Today
IPwe

Current SEP declaration databases are not
designed to track abandonment, reassignment,
family members…Inaccuracy
rate of SEP database is estimated above
40%

IPwe deploys the Global Patent Registry,
an open, transparent, un-hackable patent
registry providing a base for an accurate,
sustainable SEP tracking

Some players game the system and
inflate the number of SEP filing, casting
some doubt on the validity of SEP

The IPwe AI engine, Zuse Analytics, provides
a battle-tested validity assessment to identify
patents that may be subject to invalidity

  • Standards evolve over time while declaration
    do not
  • Essentiality assessment is tedious
  • SEP count is irrelevant as some SEP relate to
    elements of standards that are never used
  • An App developed on IPwe Platform can
    track evolution of standards over time
  • Zuse Analytics can be tuned to provide
    a comprehensive and consistent SEP
    assessment framework considering
    essentiality and standard usage

Historical data (damages, settlements,
licenses, transactions…) are in scare supply
to provide a fair valuation of individual SEP

Only new AI techniques such as Predictive
Analytics (PA) can be applied to provide a
comprehensive and consistent SEP valuation
framework considering past transactions
