Creation modes

With the "Advanced" and "Expert" plans, you get the ability to choose between three levels to lead our efforts. By properly combining grammatical and vocabulary variation settings, you can let your claims "vibrate" locally ("focused mode") or "widely" to get very different contents ("wide mode"). You can combine the best of both modes with the "balanced mode".

 

 

Focused mode

Focused mode

In this mode the meaning creation is limited. The vocabulary is limited to the words of your submitted claims and their synonyms. Our efforts focus on grammatical variations.

You may want to choose this option, for example:
- if you want us to focus our efforts on your claimed invention (e.g. repair of antecedences, repair of the claim tree structure, recombination of claims, inversion of method steps, time management, etc) and/or
- if you want to explore variations of your claims (e.g. identify other versions, possibly "better"; remember that publication is always optional) and/or
- if you manage portfolios of patents (large corporations).

 

Balanced mode

Balanced mode

In this mode you get both the "focused" mode and the "wide" mode (next). We equally divide our efforts into those two modes.

You may want to choose this option, for example:
- if you want to reasonably try to secure your invention and at the same time are interested in experimenting the creation of alien texts and/or
- if you are a small business entity (e.g. a startup) and want to preserve your options at best.

 

Wide mode

Wide mode

In this mode the meaning creation can be quite significant. Both the vocabulary and the grammar of your claims are (intensively) modified. We apply here the full range of our technologies (please see our Technology section).

You may want to choose this option, for example:
- if you want us to rather focus our efforts to create alien texts (e.g. mixing up Information Technology and Biology) and/or
- if you feel confident that your initial claims are good enough and/or
- if you are willing to discover and apply for new patents.


Footnotes

For even more details, please read the F.A.Q.

1 – cloem® core technology comprises core algorithms encoding proven industry drafting practices, e.g. advanced handling of antecedences, hardcoding and exhaustion of the claim tree, handling of time in claims, method steps combinatorics, handling of claims' categories and intermediate generalizations, etc
2 – trusted timestamping (and other undisclosed techniques)
3 – publication is always optional. Cloems™ can remain private, i.e. confidential (access rights are required to read contents)
4 – public (published) cloems are searchable by anyone; private (unpublished) cloems are searchable but technically protected
5 – each cloem is associated with a unique and permanent (or quasi-permanen) web address (URL or QR code)
6 - cloems are tentatively grammatical, i.e. the vast majority of texts will be grammatical but not all.
7 – contributions are deeply intermingled
8 – additional keywords can be submitted in order to provide further lexical directions (e.g. by providing the patent specification or words thereof)
9 – DBpedia, Wordnet and other sources can be used
10 – derived from the analysis of 70 millions of patent documents; for example definitions of terms can be injected in claims in order to desambiguate some variants
11 – three levels of granularity are allowed: subclass e.g. G06F, group e.g. G06F17 and subgroup e.g. G06F17/30. The "standard" plan allows for the selection of one and only one level. The "Advanced" and "Expert" plans allow for an unlimited number of levels, which can be different (e.g. A61M + G06F17/30)
12 – Common General Knowledge is derived from reference books, manuals, encyclopedias and other scientific publications (and sometimes essential patents)
13 – claim construction dictionaries (e.g. definitions and meaning of words in view of past prosecution or litigation)
14 – proprietary implementation derived from TRIZ; this feature is not used in the "standard" plan becauses it creates new meanings
15 – modifications brought to the grammar of the claims is a complex topic; in short, clauses (e.g. relatives) can be added or deleted, the length of the claims can be varied, etc. By modulating the changes brought to the grammar, in combination with the vocabulary being used in claims, some degrees of control can enable to get "focused" or "wide" (or "balanced") defensive publishing modes
16 – renewals are reminded by email alerts and cost 10% of the associated plan, yearly.
17 – with the "Expert" plan, our team optimizes the form, not the substance of the base claims that you submit. In other words, we optimize your claims from a grammatical and a vocabulary standpoint, and we do this in a very particular way, to better fit the strengths and limitations of our own system which we intimately know. On the substance, we do not check the adequacy between your submitted claims and your invention, and a fortiori with your projects. Only a patent professional can do that, by understanding your invention, competitive situation and business needs.
