Lowering the cost of patent annuities and patent renewals
The payment of patent annuities is an important and necessary part of maintaining an intellectual property portfolio. It demands particular expertise and creates considerable work and added expense if carried out directly with national patent offices around the world. Many patent holders elect to use intermediaries to handle their patent renewals for which that are charged a service fee in addition to the respective official fees.
IPRIS - Make your patent renewal process more flexible
The cost of patent renewals can represent a significant part of the overall patent expenditure especially for public sector and Small Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs). Additionally, most of these organisations holding patents require dedicated service support and flexibility when it comes to deciding on patent renewals and the timing for initiating this process. Such flexibility is not always possible with existing annuity payment services.Link to Case Study - Outsourcing patent renewals
