Patents are a monopoly right granted by the state—in exchange, details of how your invention works are published.
This means every patent makes public invaluable technical and strategic information—and just because you can’t copy that information doesn’t mean you can’t use it.
Insight from patent data “telegraphs” how other innovators foresee the future and are reacting to it. This not only reveals what companies are doing—it reveals what they are preparing to do.
You can see the technologies on which competitors are placing big bets, where they’re cutting their losses, the geographical concentration of inventive activity, companies building on your technologies and so much more.
