With thousands of national and global publications, patent and applications from hundreds of patenting authorities, plus many other news sources, it is no surprise that inventors and entrepreneurs often struggle to stay on top of industry developments crucial to their business decisions.
Missing a competitor’s patent filing or unknown international activity could sink even the best idea. This is even more ominous since roughly five million patents and applications are published worldwide yearly, with just 25% published by the US Patent and Trade Office (USPTO). 
Luckily, savvy small businesses can now take advantage of fine-tuned information that was once only accessible to large companies with R&D staff. (See “5 Ways Big Companies Stay Ahead of their Competitors, including you.”)
To demonstrate the power of real-time patent activity information, the Pearson Strategy Group is providing free examples of 3D Printing, Aerial Drones (UAVs), and MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems).
These sample alerts are updated once a week, usually on Sundays, and offer a simplified demonstration of PSG’s most basic offering.
More detailed results of these free reports or weekly delivery can be arranged by contacting Pearson Strategy.
NOTE: A more comprehensive monitoring solution, custom-designed for each company’s specific needs and strategy, is strongly recommended when making financial or other significant decisions.
