The modern API ecosystem promises that everything should be connected. At IP Street, we take this as a personal challenge and work hard to develop interesting new ways of connecting our patent data and patent analytics API service to the world around us.
Graph databases excel at modeling data where relationships are first class citizens. The relationships exist as a permanent aspect of the data set rather than as an ephemeral join created only when a query is run. This presents a wide diversity of interesting analytical opportunities which aren’t natural in a traditional “relational” database. Once you understand graph data structures, you start to see graphs everywhere.
Our Head of Product, Reed Jessen, was recently quoted by The Spokane Journal of Business in their recent article, "Inland Northwest tech industry observers see growth".

We at IP Street believe our city is a great place for startups, and not just ones like ours that focus on providing intellectual property analytics APIs. Spokane has enabled us to create exciting patent tools to sharpen your competitive intelligence and, while we could choose to live anywhere, we’d prefer to be here.
2016 has been an exciting year of change and growth for IP Street. When we were founded in 2010 we were primarily a SaaS platform. Over this year we have fine tuned our offerings significantly and now are primarily a Patent Data API Vendor. We want you to think of us for any patent data analytics integrations you can envision. Kevin Blocker of The Spokane Journal of Business recently interviewed our Head of Product Reed Jessen about this innovative pivot. You can read the full article here.
Here at IP Street we are proud to showcase innovative companies building useful tools with our patent API. Today, we want to introduce you to Patent Action Forecast, a business and intellectual property analytics company specializing in creating reports to enable small and medium business owners understand their patent dispute situation and make more informed decisions.
With the IP Street API, we can quickly build you analysis tools that cut through terabytes of patent data and return thorough information, all while integrating into your existing systems. Let us automate your currently manual patent work flows.
Here are three examples of the building blocks we offer:
1) Rapid due diligence reports. You send a patent number; we return maintenance fee status, assignment history, existence of litigation, key dates, and encumbrances if they exist. If anything is amiss, it also flags these issues for attorney review. (Our law firm clients in fields such as investment banking, M&A, corporate structuring, wills & estates, litigation, and bankruptcy have all found this valuable).
Here at IP Street we are proud of our Pacific Northwest roots and the local tech community. Watch this informative five-minute video by our Head of Product Reed Jessen to learn more about the APIs underlying the next generation of innovative companies. If you want to harness the power of our specialized patent analytics data APIs please request a demo!
The world of patent law is highly opaque to most observers. To have authority in this world, not only must one be a member of legal priesthood, one must be a member of the engineering priesthood as well. This high barrier to entry makes it very difficult for clients to make data-driven distinctions between patent law firms. Firms are traditionally selected by reputation or based on relationships and the quality of their work rarely enters the equation. IP Street's Patent Claim Scope algorithm enables users to transcend this word-of-mouth analysis by providing measurable quality metrics for a patent law firm's actual work product, the claim text.
