General Patent (GPC) helps inventors sell or license their patents through its patent brokerage business unit. Most inventors approach General Patent about a patent infringement issue, and if the decision is made to pursue a patent enforcement campaign, selling the patent is not a consideration. Also, as part of every patent enforcement campaign, GPC seeks additional licensees for the patent.
However, if you submit your patent enforcement claim to us for analysis, and we determine for whatever reason that it is not a claim that we can pursue on your behalf, our patent brokerage business unit may be able to help you monetize your patent or other IP by finding a buyer or licensees for it.
Just as General Patent represents patent enforcement clients on a contingency basis, our patent brokerage represents clients who want to sell their patents on a contingency basis, taking payment for their services from any revenue they generate on your behalf. Our patent brokerage also represents patent owners who want to license their patents on a hybrid formula that includes a monthly fee plus a performance bonus.
