Various forms of claim charts and and claim-based reports can be generated using the PakDek claim chart generator features. You can use the claim charts and reports in support of your invalidity contentions. For example, the system provides a feature to generate a standard two-column claim chart showing the claim limitation in the left column and the corresponding prior art information in an adjacent column. Options for generating a standard claim chart include portrait/landscape, as well as text with citations or citations only (no prior art text). Another type of chart that can be generated includes claim concepts in one column and additional columns for each prior art reference, with a checkmark indicating that a reference discloses the concept.
Other generated reports provide: section 102/103 reference lists for selected claims; a table that identifies all prior art references for a case identifying the pertinent information for each reference; and a Heat Map showing the frequency of each concept relevant to a patent or group of claims.
The invalidity chart contains the information entered about each concept. Because each claim limitation is linked to concepts, all relevant information for a claim limitation appears in the chart and can be changed by editing any concept.×
The Progress Table shows you the concepts required by each claim/claim limitation in the left-hand column. Along the top of the table, you see the references for your case. The table is populated with checkmarks indicating that a reference discloses the concept.×
The system allows you to generate claim charts by selecting the claims to be included in the chart and the target invalidity references to be applied against the claims. The software does the rest - providing you with a two-column invalidity claim chart in Microsoft Word, mapping the target references to each claim on a limitation-by-limitation basis.
The combined reporting features allow you to output invalidity contentions as well as review the analysis progress to identify possible gaps in the prior art.
