Patent Information Use BenchmarksPatent Information Use Benchmarks is a valuable new report that provides you with meaningful benchmarks on:

  • Patent information sources
  • Patent royalty information
  • Patent database spending
  • Using outside organizations for patent searches
  • Patent information literacy
  • Data mining
  • Organizing patent archives
  • and more!

You’ll find scores of data points in over 115 data tables. This 82-page report includes data from a survey of three populations of patent information users: major law firms, major companies, and research-oriented universities.

Take a look at just a small sample of vital questions that will be answered in this valuable report:

  • How do patent information users view sources such as Chemical Abstracts, Google Patents Search, Westlaw Patents, PatBase and many others?
  • How much is spent annually on patent databases, and how much on patents searches?
  • What are some of the most trusted sources for patent information from China? Or South Korea?
  • Which sources are being used for patent royalty rate information? 
  • What training is provided to researchers regarding patent searches?
  • What kind of information related to their patents do patent holders archive?

The data in this comprehensive report is broken out by type of institution and the work role of the survey responder: i.e. librarian, technology executives, attorney, patent agent, and more.

ABBYY USA Software House, Inc., Alston & Bird LLP, City University London, Columbia University, CreatiVenture Law, Dalhousie University, Dinsmore&Shohl, Elon University School of Law, ION Geophysical Corporation, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Medicago Inc., North Carolina A&T State University, NYU School of Law Library, Prysm, Inc, Rabin & Berdo, Rutgers-Newark Law School Library, Sidley Austin LLP, Sun Chemical Corporation, University of Edinburgh,University of Rochester, Wake Forest University

  • Law firms in the sample spent a mean of $29,525 and a median of $8,500 respectively on patent searches in 2014.
