What is Vaultitude?
Securely store your IP
Vaultitude offers a digital vault in which all types of IP can be securely stored. Corporate accounts are ideal for teams working together with different user rights and a log documenting all actions of the users. Optimal protection against data corruption, fire or theft.
Clear proof of copyright
Gives secure proof of first authorship accepted in legal proceedings, trials or patent applications and reduces the risk of infringement by deterrence. Quickly resolves disputes, improves the speed of removal of infringing content and thus avoids costs.
Superior defense mechanism
Faster and safer than publication in scientific journals, which requires third parties to become privy to the invention before actual publishing. Safer than server-based services as the data will be on the Blockchain. Documents publication and actual access. Ensures freedom of use, prevents others from filing a patent.
Safe sharing of information
Vaultitude supports the easy sharing of confidential information by sending out a simple link to a third party, that gets access to the data only after signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) which is also saved to the blockchain. This proves that access happened only after the acceptance of the legal terms and conditions.
A versatile marketplace
Our software allows users to assign multiple owners to each IP. Each IP can then be sold or licensed and the proceeds from that are automatically distributed among the owners according to their share of the rights. All transactions and the associated contracts are documented on the Blockchain.
Protect existing patents
Publishing incremental changes to existing patent protected technology is ideal for defending patent portfolios. By making new concepts publicly available, third parties are prevented from filing patents for improved products and the original patents retain their value.
Finance your ideas
In countries in which a grace period after publication of a new invention exists, the author retains his right to file a patent. The platform can thus be an e ective tool in pre-seed financing by helping inventors to raise the funds for filing a patent and/or commercializing it – thanks to better protection and higher visibility of a published IP.
Build a network & peer review
Built for optimising the daily work of scientific communities and within a corporate environment, the platform helps connect and collaborate with colleagues and external partners through network and messaging features and peer review capabilities, which allow giving feedback on published IP.
Find expert help
Inventors and researchers are usually leading experts in their respective field of technology. However, the drafting and filing of patent and trademark applications requires the help of experienced IP professionals. Vaultitude helps user to find such experts and allows for the secure transfer of confidential information.
