VideoLabs will partner and work with video companies and other service providers focused on reducing the cost and risk of video patents. The platform is designed to be collaborative, efficient and fair to patent users and owners.
How We Help
VideoLabs is focused on bringing greater efficiency to the patent system. VideoLabs collects and aggregates annual membership fees that enable it to identify and acquire patents on behalf of the video industry. In exchange, members gain access to the most valuable patent rights worldwide in the exploding segment of video, clearing significant risk and allowing them to design and innovate freely without unnecessary costs or fear of litigation. By accurately assessing the quality of all video patents and purchasing only the most impactful video patents, VideoLabs disrupts a system marred by low-quality patents. It also encourages innovation by compensating owners of important patents equitably for their contributors.
VideoLabs’ approach is unique because of its singular and deep focus on video-related technology. With the explosion of the creation and consumption of video over the internet and more than 1.4 million active video patents worldwide, there is an urgent need for a service that gives companies the knowledge, freedom and confidence to efficiently create and innovate in this segment. The VideoLabs team has spent years cataloging and analyzing known video patents, gaining unparalleled insight into which patents are impactful and which are not. Leveraging and sharing this knowledge, VideoLabs provides a valuable service to the industry.
