Sciraptor is a patent research tool created by AmiCOUR IP Group, LLC. According to a 2008 press release, the software is used for "electronically reading the text of a patent and pointing patent owners towards potential infringers." [1] AmiCOUR also offers "a companion search string 'viewer' to help users of Sciraptor technology find licensing opportunities in large patent portfolios."[1]

A presentation by Steven Lundberg and Ann McCrackin of Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner, P.A describes how Sciraptor locates similar prior art:[2]

  • The program "reads" the application text and claims.
  • It uses proprietary text analysis to identify most important ideas.
  • It "instructs popular search engines to find patents, patent applications, publications and products with closely matched relevance vectors."
