Analysis of Patents Rewording patent claims & descriptions doesn't make it patentable
USPTO Bulk Data downloadable via Google Large storage arrays (4TB+) start at under $300 Amazon EC2 reduces the barriers to entry Code makes a difference - start programming Patent Analysis
Problems with current process Word-based prior art search is hit-and-miss, resulting in "slightly different" patents described in a way that sounds novel. Invalidating patents is expensive. Placing patents in primary classes that would be less likely to find prior art in the class.
Overused phrases in Patents "Heuristic Algorithm" "Over a network" "Searchable Database" "Plurality of" "converting the signal into one or more digital" "Distributed System Of" "communicate with the electronic device" "device is configured" "network based system"
Solutions Designing systems with legacy compatibility with USPTO is not a major issue as the XML DTDs for patent data is well defined. Solutions could partially be provided on Amazon EC2/S3 with common patent indexing and sharded archives was available for instances with minimal resources. Virtually anyone with can setup their own patent database, to identify poor quality, abusive and potentially invalid patents.
