PatentCafe’s Claims Alert is the industry’s most powerful and most advanced patent awareness solution!

Our Claims Alert employs our Latent Semantic Analysis search technology to track the concept of the invention described by the patent claims you want to track. Plus, the claims alert allows precise filtering using robust integrated Boolean search tools.

  • Stay informed of newly issued patents worldwide, for an entire year.
  • Find patents intentionally written to avoid discovery by Boolean patent search engines.
  • Identify potentially lucrative new licensing opportunities in non-obvious industry segments.


  • Allows you to monitor patents related to the claims text of your focused (baseline) patent.
  • Identify important patents, even those published in German, and French
  • Returns results relevancy ranked, with the most important patent documents appearing first (saves weeks of review time when the alert produces thousands of results).
  • Persistent intelligence of relevant patent activity – even in different, non-obvious classifications, or even if no keywords match the claims text.
