*1 IPB Patent Score
The proprietary IPB Patent Score is an automated patent evaluation system developed by IPB. Based mainly on prosecution history data, which is a record of legal procedures starting from application filing to expiration of the application/patent, an attractiveness score (valuation) for each patent application is generated by indexing the actions made by three parties (applicant, examiner, and competitor) to the patent application.
