Feedback from AmberScope users
AmberScope is relatively new but already we are starting to gain some highly favourable reviews from users, including:
"We would like to mention how great we think the AmberScope search tool performs. We had the opportunity to test it now already for a case we are working on and it performs brilliantly." - Dr. Patrick Daum, M.Sc., B.Sc, European Patent Attorney
"Bloody brilliant....using AmberScope ...I found prior art we should definitely be aware of. And yes it was missed by the Australian and US examiner even though it is by the same applicant.....this tool will potentially be the centre piece tool for every patent search and every examiner" - Patent search manager
"My role is more directly analyzing patents including claims, infringement and prior art. AmberScope appears exceptional for identifying prior art from anything else I've seen." - Paul Morinville, CEO at OrgStructure, US
"Just to make you aware that I have used your AmberScope product with good success" - Curtis Droege, President, Tungsten IP
"I can not appreciate how much work and time this program has saved us. Its capability to analyse all possible relevant patents in accordance to timeline, key words and other means are a great filtering tool. The degree of relevance highlighted by the thickness and type of arrows are even more helpful in eventually pinpointing a possible IP area to target the new technology". - Kishan Nawzidh, Monash University
"AmberScope was able to find a novelty knockout document for a granted patent where the novelty knockout document was missed both the PTO and a leading US attorney firm asked to provide a validity opinion" - IP Manager
"I am a cynical man, but I love it" - Brendan Nugent, Patent Attorney and former patent searcher
"I spent two days looking for a relevant patent for a client using a conventional search. The second patent took me 30 minutes to find with AmberScope" - Patent Attorney
"I was able to find a patent I had not seen before, even after 20 years in the technical area" - Patent Attorney
"I was able to uncover significantly more patents that were relevant to my topic, ... much more quickly than when compared to a text based site. I found the graphical representation very intuitive and easy to use. It also opened up relevant areas that I would not have otherwise considered". - Mechanical Engineering Consultant, for a new product engineering company.
“I was looking for a prior art patent to invalidate a granted patent that was blocking a client’s product coming to market. I had tried a conventional patent search, and even a conventional citation search, but without luck. So I ran the search in AmberScope – and by exploring the visual links was able to find a prior art patent that essentially discloses the blocking patent. My client is now in a much better position to bring a product to market. Once again, AmberScope has found prior art missed by other searching techniques.” Gennaro Simonetta – Patent attorney, IP consultant and former patent examiner – Griffith Hack
"I recently used AmberScope for a novelty search and got a knock-out hit in less than half an hour. Even though, we generally use other platforms for searches I have to admit once you use Amberscope, you can't go back to anything else. Keep up the good work!" - Australian patent attorney
"I represent [X] in their case against [Y]. I was thoroughly impressed by your analysis of the [Y] patents" - US patent attorney, in response to a recent blog.
"Thanks Ambercite, still loving it" - Patent attorney and founder, Minneapolis
