Ambercite has just updated Cluster Searching to searching by patent families ,.i.e ."Family Cluster Searching". There are a number of benefits in Family Cluster Searching, so we are pleased to be able to offer this to new and existing clients.
Among these benefits is a much improved ability to search for patents from some of the non-western economies, i.e. China / Japan /South Korea and Taiwan. The growth of patents filed in this area has been dramatic - Family Cluster Searching offers a new way to search these patents.
In a blog found here, we show who we can quickly move from a Chinese patent filed by Nike to a whole range of country specific and similar patents in the above countries.
This is a big step forward. We have been asked many times if we can assist with these jurisdictions - it is very pleasing to be able to help our clients in this area.
