An Examination of Quality in Patents
11 July 2018

In this white paper, we discuss how subjective, manual generation of systematic names can impact the quality of information contained within a patent. The generation of systematic names for the submission of a patent is a time-consuming and challenging process requiring much rigor. Errors could potentially lead to delays during the filing process, create ambiguity in the coverage, and lead to patent vulnerability and invalidation. Fortunately, existing software offers an objective, facile, and fast manner by which to generate high-quality systematic names, and provides a way to check the accuracy of given names.
