Why Aithent IP Manager
Violations of intellectual property rights have become a plague on world markets for practically every industry and endeavor. Pirating of copyrighted, patented and trademarked materials, from movies and music, toys and technology, pharmaceuticals and more, has impacted companies' top- and bottom-lines in profound ways.
While the U.S. government seeks to improve policing among its trade partners, organizations of all types and sizes realize they must be vigilant in protecting their valuable intellectual property. These operations need a way to collect and organize information on apparent rights violations, assess them and move to some form of resolution.
The answer is Aithent IP Manager, a comprehensive case management solution for intellectual property violation investigations. Whether you want to make certain your brand is not hijacked by a counterfeiter, or prevent knock-offs of your product from finding their way to stores, or stop your software from being replicated and distributed illegally, Aithent IP Manager offers the functionality investigators need to handle the most complex cases of usage and rights violations.
Investigators chasing IP violations work extensively via email. The process of collecting and organizing violation alerts as well as preparing and issuing progress reports is extremely complex. Emails per incident can range from 50 for a case three months old to as many as 500 for one lasting a half-a-year or more. And, they are not just simple text messages. Reporters of violations and investigators often include links to phony Web sites, screen views, actual photos of questionable items, even video and audio files.
Since much of this information can be part of a legal action, should that step be taken, tracking the emails, the evidence and being able to prepare reports to be used as court documentation is critical.
Aithent IP Manager is designed to handle all that and more. Its core functions include:
- Global investigation coordination between violation reporters and case investigators and investigation managers
- Organization of all evidence pertaining to each individual IP violation
- Tracking of all communications relating to an IP violation case
The nature of Aithent IP Manager's technology platform also allows it to be configured to suit unique IP investigation approaches.
