Juristat IDS can automate your IDS practice without you or your staff lifting a finger.

Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), Juristat IDS knows every patent application filed at the USPTO, every piece of prior art cited in each case, every foreign equivalent, every continuity relationship, and every subject matter relationship you load into your private instance. 

This means that no matter the disclosure trigger or complexity of the patent family, Juristat IDS is able to deliver the documents you need directly to your email inbox – all within 2 business days

Automate this task for only $50 per IDS

If your firm is spending valuable time generating IDSs, it’s time to switch to Juristat IDS. Let's talk.

The best of artificial and human intelligence

Juristat’s AI knows every application filed at the USPTO, each piece of prior art cited, and the familial relationships between each application. It can instantly determine which IDS needs to be filed and what prior art needs to be cited.

Juristat leverages AI to increase speed and reduce costs, but we also employ a team of data analysts to review the work and ensure the highest quality of every document. All analysts are U.S.-based full-time employees of Juristat. Further, they undergo annual background checks, are required to sign extensive confidentiality agreements, and receive frequent cybersecurity training.

How does Juristat IDS work?

Juristat IDS can handle all of your disclosure triggers. We have generated IDS for office actions both foreign and domestic, for PCT search results, and for new filings. Download an overview of Juristat IDS. 

Domestic Office Actions

When an examiner issues a 102 or 103 rejection, Juristat automatically determines what IDS needs to be filed and generates the completed SB-08 form.

How does Juristat detect domestic OAs?

Thanks to private PAIR integration, we receive minute-by-minute updates on domestic office actions. This allows us to deliver your IDS within 2 business days of the OA issuance. This is not possible through the USPTO’s public data feeds.

Additionally, this allows us to produce response IDSs for both published and unpublished applications – something every Juristat IDS customer has requested!

Foreign Office Actions

Simply forward the email from foreign counsel notifying you of the foreign office action to a custom secure email address within Juristat, and our AI will take it from there.

What gets cited in a foreign inbound IDS?

Juristat will cite the foreign prior art and either (a) the U.S. equivalent, if present, or (b) provide a machine translation of the abstract from Espace.net and automatically check the box indicating an English translation is attached.

PCT

Similar to a foreign office action, when you receive a search report on a PCT application, simply forward a digital copy to a custom secure email address within Juristat to trigger our tool.

New Filings

Whether you want to upload a series of complex patent searches or input the number of another application in the same family, Juristat makes it easy to handle IDS generation for new filings.

Delivered securely to your email

Once a disclosure trigger is detected, Juristat IDS instantly traverses the family tree, identifies active cases, and determines what prior art has already been cited. Without you having to log in to any new tools, a complete, ready-to-file IDS will be delivered to your email inbox within two business days.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Juristat IDS cost?

Juristat IDS costs $50 per IDS, plus an optional $25 when you’d like us to provide the prior art documents. No matter the number of references or family size, it is still $50 per IDS. If after an OA occurs, we traverse the family tree and determine that no IDS needs to be filed, then you pay nothing.

How do I get started?

First, talk to our sales team. They will walk you through the process and get your initial 2-week trial scheduled.

Before your trail starts, our client success team will help you set up private PAIR access and hold an onboarding session to get you set up with a Juristat account and train you on the process of accessing and downloading your IDS. 
Does family size impact cost?
No! No matter the number of references or family size, it is still $50 per IDS. 
Why do you need private PAIR access?

Private PAIR integration allows for minute-by-minute updates on domestic office actions, so we can get your IDS delivered within 2 business days of the OA issuance. This is not possible through the USPTO’s public data feeds.

Additionally, this allows us to produce response IDSs for both published and unpublished applications – something every Juristat IDS customer has requested!

Do I pay if no IDS needs to be filed?

If we traverse the family tree and determine that no IDS needs to be filed, then you pay nothing.

How do you set up private PAIR access?

It's simple! Just one attorney at your firm needs to login to their MyUSPTO account and sponsor Juristat. Our client success team can guide you through the setup process.

What gets cited in a foreign inbound IDS?

Juristat will cite the foreign prior art and either (a) the U.S. equivalent, if present, or (b) provide a machine translation of the abstract from Espace.net and automatically check the box indicating an English translation is attached.

Is granting PAIR access allowed by the USPTO?

Absolutely! In fact, The USPTO’s new sponsorship system was specifically created to allow these kinds of interactions:

“Each sponsored support staff works under the direction and control of the sponsoring practitioner, and is an employee of the sponsoring practitioner’s organization or an employee of a contractor of an organization that is under contract to the sponsoring practitioner or the sponsoring practitioner’s organization.”  USPTO Guidance, pages 4-5

Can I trust the accuracy of Juristat IDS?
Juristat IDS is based on artificial intelligence developed over time through extensive research, testing, and development. We're confident in its abilities! Additionally, we have a team of top-notch data analysts that audit IDSs for an added level of accuracy. 
Is my data secure?

The security of your data is of the utmost importance to us. All myUSPTO accounts that you sponsor are unique for your firm with two-factor authentication and a unique password that is rotated as required/recommended by the USPTO to further limit the risk and extent of a breach.

Additionally, Juristat conducts annual penetration tests to ensure we are employing state-of-the-art security protocols. Additionally, each client's non-published data is stored with a unique encryption key, separated from all other clients on an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). All network traffic into and out of the VPC is secured via SSL encryption, and maintenance access to all services and databases inside the VPC is carefully monitored and limited. Juristat developers do have access to code repositories on their local development machines. All routes are served over HTTPS, including authentication routes. Our state-of-the-art authentication provider is thoroughly audited, including SOC 2 Type II auditing, and holds rigorous certifications, including ISO27001 and ISO27018.
