This week I received a note from MaxVal, a company that serves patent attorneys and agents with a broad range of software and services for patent portfolio management.
One useful (and free) service that MaxVal offers is a page of free online patent tools, including:
– a Patent Widget that gathers information from multiple databases and presents bibliographic information, assignment data and maintenance fee data in one place;
– a Claim Chart Generator; and
– a IFW File Splitter that divides the PDF of a USPTO file history into individual documents based on bookmarks.
MaxVal is also offering a free one-year subscription to its daily IP litigation alert emails. To subscribe, click here.
