Patent holders, this year’s version of Allied Security Trust’s Industry Patent Purchase Program, “IP3,” is a good indication of where the demand is highest.
The 2018 fixed price, time-limited program AST and its members are searching for patents primarily in the following categories:
- Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning
- Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality
- Automotive / Transportation Services
- Internet of Things / Connected Devices
- Smart Home
- Software / Web Services
Most technologies are no surprise, but others, like Augmented Reality/ Virtual Reality, may encourage lawyers and their clients to revisit portfolios. It is also good to see interest in Software Patents, as well.
The window for submitting patents for sale will be open from July 9 through July 20.
