EVIDENCE OF USE (EoU)
What is Evidence of Use (EoU)?
While working on large portfolios, the best and most efficient way forward is generating one or more Evidence of Use (EoU) reports. EoUs provide a visual representation of evidence showing how patented technology has been implemented by an infringing product or service, based on screenshots or text from product marketing material, developer documentation, FAQs, videos, network tests and/or photographs of the product or teardowns of the product.
Evidence of Use (EoU) claim charts are an essential artifact during any patent licensing or enforcement campaign, as it articulates the infringement theory in an easy to understand and difficult to refute format. Moreover, claim charts may evolve throughout a campaign, as new evidence is discovered during fact discovery, and the infringement positions become consolidated pre-trial.
