Recently, Blueshift IP partners Robert Plotkin and Cynthia Gilbert, authored a post for IPWatchdog, the leading patent blog for intellectual property practitioners and patent owners.  The article describes Blueshift’s unique approach to obtaining software patents for its clients by bypassing the unpredictability of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) appeal process.

The landscape of the patent ecosystem has changed radically in recent years, and our strategies for obtaining strong and defensible patents for our clients has changed in response.  Key points that we make in the IPWatchdog article are:

  • How old strategies for obtaining patents are now obsolete, and how our unique strategy leverages the way the system works today for the benefit of our clients.
  • The high cost of time and money of an appeal and how our new approach counteracts this to obtain patents for our clients more quickly and inexpensively.
  • How we obtain defensible and commercially valuable software patents for our clients.
  • Our strategic approach to obtaining increasing patent protection over time by creating patent portfolios that provide increasing return on investment over time while maximizing protection early.
