Intellectual Property Insider
Patents grant the property rights to an invention. Applications are submitted to the United States Patent Office (USPTO) for a 20 year term. There are three types of patents namely, design, utility, and plant patents. The claims are the heart of a patent, in that they define the limits of exactly what the patent does, and does not, cover.
The Sprint and T-Mobile merger is expected to be a major development in the rollout of 5G. Both parties are hopeful that the FCC will approve the merger citing increasing competition in the segment as well as the potential national GDP growth if the US can remain a mobile technology leader.
We approached our, various, highly experienced Subject Matter Experts to provide insight on Broadcom buying Qualcomm and what can be expected in the international race to 5G. Why the Broadcom Qualcomm merger failed? What our experts expect from Qualcomm and Broadcom moving forward.
IP prosecution involves pre-grant prosecution and negotiation with a patent office for the grant of a patent, while the post-grant prosecution relates to amendments and oppositions.
“Wireless” devices are so common in everyday life, that almost no one thinks of the literal meaning as “not needing wires.” The devices we now carry around with us would be useless if they had to be connected like a land line phone.
The following is an excerpt from the published article entitled Patent Portfolio Valuations – Importance of IP and Patents by IP Watchdog. The featured article was written by GHB Intellect’s Chief Strategy Officer and valuation expert, Dr. Masoud Vakili.

The Daubert standard provides a rule of evidence regarding the admissibility of expert witness testimony during a United States federal legal proceeding. The rule of evidence, also known as the law of evidence, covers the principles that govern the proof of facts in a case.
This tutorial, presented at DesignCon 2017, provides a critical look at the potential opportunities for 4G & pre-5G technology. Slides from the presentation are available here for free download. Additionally, a recap of the presentation can also be found.
It has become a regular topic of conversation for many people in the tech industry; “What are your thoughts on the approaching 5G transition?” There are many aspects to consider when approaching this question. GHB Intellect answers this question using a practical understanding of 4G and 5G Radio Access Networks (RAN).
We will be discussing several aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the article below. First, we will provide a brief summary of IoT. Then, we will discuss how the technology market, patent trends, and government interventions will continue to influence it. The changes to the automotive industry will also be further examined to show why it will remain a segment leader in innovation for connected-devices.
In a complex legal and engineering world, it can be difficult to understand how an intellectual property consulting firm fits into the broader scope of portfolio analysis, reverse engineering, and other needed expert work. The following infographic will help explain “How GHB Intellect Chooses Experts.”
In many, if not most, IP cases the utilization of both consulting experts and testifying experts is common. One key difference between the two is the ability for the opposing counsel to depose a testifying witness while the work of consulting experts is generally protected as part of work-product privilege.
When handling cases involving these complex IP issues, often in regards to technology, the choice of a knowledgeable expert can be critical to determining the relevant facts of a case and interpretation of those facts. A combination of external legal counsel and a company’s in house resources is necessary to determine what type of expert will be needed as well as creating criteria for the selection of a qualified expert from the desired field.
Primarily, biotechnology is any technology based on living organisms. This may be harnessing molecular and cellular processes, or creating technologies and medical devices that replicate these processes in order to improve our lives.
There is a lot of talk in the industry about how big data is shaping the future of business and everyday life, but what is big data and what does machine learning have to do with it?

Wireless communications has come a long way from its early days, evolving at an exponential speed.
One of the more rapidly evolving wireless technologies is mobile communication. It was only in the 1980’s that the first analog cellular phone networks (AMPS, in the US) was commerically deployed.
As the term implies, reverse engineering (RE) is the act of taking apart an engineered or designed product or device back to its elemental engineering/design components. The motivation for such an act may be varied anywhere from competitive analysis and patent infringement detection to legacy design recovery.
The following Infographic has been created by GHB Intellect to answer the question “Do I Need An Expert Witness?” Additionally, a background and several key questions that need to be answered when determining what an expert witness has the ability to do and how to select the right expert for your needs are also identified.
If you have ever dealt with professional prior art searchers for high technology/science, you know that you can never be sure what report quality you are going to get at the end of the project. Of course, you commission the search because you do not have the prior art information you are looking for.
