Comparison of publication methods

Question: I have a text describing my invention. Which route should I choose to get effective defensive publishing ?

Answer: Cloem provides a guided rework of your initial content describing your idea: provide a definition and an initial bag of words for variants, Cloem will calculate and suggest further vocabulary. You will be able to select words used for variants or add your own words. Cloem will then produce a fantastic number of grammatical sentences, using only the vocabulary you agreed on. By publishing variants of your idea, you are way more robust to adjacent patenting (i.e. a peripheral development of your idea by a third party leading to a situation where you would be blocked by adverse rights). Since you can control the vocabulary injected in cloems, you can eliminate any risk of creating prior art endangering further patent filings of yours. Regarding searchability and retrieval, Cloem is working to establish partnerships with patent offices to improve cloems’ retrieval. Even if  a patent examiner does not retrieve spontaneously a cloem text, you can point it out afterwards.  And again: you absolutely can keep cloems private and confidential i.e. unpublished.
