Patent Filing & Annuity Fee Management Benchmarks

Feb 2015| PRG080A| Primary Research Group

Report Highlights

The 67-page study looks closely at how major corporations and research-oriented universities organize and make decisions about the payment and management of filing and annuity  fees for their patent portfolios.  The study helps its readers to answer questions such as: How much are patent holders paying in filing and annuity fees? What percentage of their patents do they abandon? If they stop paying annuity fees when do they generally do so? How do they make these decisions?  How do they organize the logistics of filing and annuity fee payments? What kind of software, web-based applications or consultancies do they use? How much manpower do they expend in keeping up with filing and annuity fees? What percentage of their patents are provisional? What percentage of filing and annuity fee payments are made in a “grace period?”
