PAIR Monitoring & Alerts


Competitive intelligence is an essential component of any business strategy, especially when it comes to monitoring a competitor’s patent portfolio. However, anyone who has tracked a patent through the USPTO’s Public PAIR website knows how time-consuming and tedious the process is to find any new prosecution developments.

PAIR Alerts obviates the burden of tracking on the USPTO's public PAIR website through automatic monitoring of application, patent, and reexamination proceedings of competitors’ patents. The service also enables a customized user experience by allowing each user to determine the delivery style and frequency of each notification. Whether analyzing litigation exposure, trying to get a jump start on post grant review options, or crafting research and development plans, Cardinal’s PAIR Alerts will help you accomplish your goals.

PAIR Alerts is a flexible service comprised of an intuitive cloud-based interface for service management and automated email notifications for registered recipients. Because of the management options available, the service can be administrated by use cases of all sizes, from individual attorney projects to full librarian administration. Cardinal’s friendly service staff works with customers to create an account custom to their needs.

Notification settings can cover all continuity related data per monitored application, allowing service users to monitor for continuations and divisionals filed off of an application. Additionally, these applications can be automatically added to account watches, reducing the administrative overhead and ensuring comprehensive monitoring of patent families

Benefits of Cardinal’s PAIR Alerts service include the ability to:
  • Review amendments to competitor claims as they are made
  • Monitor issuing patents for post-grant review opportunities
  • Receive automated e-mail notifications for specific changes in status
  • Access one-click downloads of image file wrappers
  • Track re-examination proceedings
  • Identify and automatically monitor new filings within patent families.
