Invention strength – Does the patent protect an entirely new concept or is it an incremental invention? Is it similar to any standard?
Validity strength – Can the patent withstand any invalidity assertion?
Commercial Value Score
Market relevance – What is the addressable market size and business relevancy of the patented technology?
Infringement potential – What is the scope of identifying infringers? Do major companies have products in the technology domain?
