Prior Art Citation Search (PACS)
IdeaConnection conducts prior art citation searches for patent litigation. Our PACS methodology is very different from any other resource. Instead of using passive, traditional search procedures, IdeaConnection incentivizes our global network, and awards each relevant citation uncovered.
If you have used these sources: USPTO EAST System, Delphion®, LexisNexis®, Dialog®, Derwent WPI®, INPADOC®, MicroPatent PatentWeb®, Questel-Orbit®, STN®, CAS®, GenomeQuest®, ACM®, IEEE®, and not found what you want, it's time to use our service.
Our clients have found that we are extraordinarily successful at finding publically disclosed or described obscure citations.
IdeaConnection aggressively mobilizes an extensive network of experts, using an economic incentive to motivate them to create and search their own networks.
Actively building these networks, our system examines common methods, as well as obscure non-patent literature, presentations, posters, oral proceedings, grant proposals, lecture notes, academic thesis' (PhD & Masters), conference proceedings, foreign language citations, and government reports, among many other digital and physical resources.
IdeaConnection succeeds because we have thousands of relationships with foreign associates around the world who have access to non-traditional and unconventional disclosures.
PACS is a contingency service with no upfront fee and you pay only for successful citations that you can use.
