Last year as part of our continued process improvement initiatives, G&G implemented data verification to our docketing process. Using Foundation IP’s IP One Data System, data is independently verified throughout the life cycle of the patent.
Quality Paralegal, Erik Boyd, who attended the CPA Global Ignite Conference, summarized the the new tool’s scope:
Our docket entries are now compared against a pool of IP data obtained from over 100 external data sources. The data pool obtained from these sources is updated over 200,000 times a month, which enables us to have a robust process to validate priority claims, publication dates, grant dates, and patent numbers, among other things.
