i4F’s Patent Cluster Concept
Enabling licensees to choose the technology they want and to know exactly what they are paying for is the rationale behind i4F’s Patent Cluster Concept (PCC). PCC is a ‘pick and choose’ patent menu offering i4F licensees unprecedented transparency and flexibility.
With i4F representing portfolios of patents across multiple categories, the new system groups i4F patents falling under the same category in so-called “clusters”. This means i4F licensees have more options to select patents, or groups of patents, that best meet their most current business needs or create new revenue streams. PCC also provides full transparency on the composition of license fees so that licensees can obtain the best return on investment while avoiding unnecessary payments for unused patents.
