Alexandria, VA (February 24, 2010) – Landon IP, the global leader in professional patent searching and analysis, is pleased to announce that Intellogist and the Intellogist Blog continue to receive recognition from the intellectual property community. Intellogist, which was launched in April 2009, is a free online tool that provides the IP community with a revolutionary resource for investigating and comparing prior art search sources, gathering expert opinions, and sharing best practices. In January 2010, Landon IP followed up by launching The Intellogist Blog, with a goal of providing additional support for the development of a thriving, active social network for IP professionals worldwide.
Both Intellogist and The Intellogist Blog are receiving ongoing recognition from the IP community, as shown by these recent commendations:
“For those interested in serious, heavy-duty comparisons of patent databases there is a detailed comparison page for 21 databases on the Intellogist web site, where clicking on the little grey lightbulbs gives the details. Only a few people have contributed their valuations so far, and in my opinion the most valuable part is the site’s explanations of the coverage, ways of searching and so on and their summing ups at the bottom of the page.” – Steve van Dulken, Information Expert, British Library Research Service, The Patent Search Blog, February 18, 2010 (http://britishlibrary.typepad.co.uk/patentsblog/2010/02/which-database-covers-patents-best-.html)
“Searching: I am enjoying a new blog by the patent searchers at Landon IP: The Intellogist.” – Dennis Crouch, Associate Professor, University of Missouri School of Law, PatentlyO Blog, “Bits and Bytes No. 316,” January 29, 2010 (http://www.patentlyo.com/patent/2010/01/patently-o-bits-and-bytes-3.html
“The Intellogist, a wiki for patent searchers, has launched a blog. It’s a nice addition to a site that already has some great resources, including patent search system profiles and comparisons, coverage information and best practices for patent searching. I look forward to following it…” – Michael White, Librarian of Research Services, Engineering and Science Library at Queen’s University, The Patent Librarian’s Notebook, January 28, 2010 (http://patentlibrarian.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-intellogist-blog.html)
