So, you know, the other thing that the patent analytics can help us a lot with for inventors is tracking their work history, particularly after they leave the company. Many companies are concerned with the leaking of their technology to competitors, so if you follow an inventor that leaves a company and you see them crop up at a competing company on similar patented technology, you may be alarmed that this is perhaps a little bit too close for comfort and you may perhaps then decide to send a warning letter to the other company. So you can kind of keep tabs on whether your inventors are abiding by their obligations under their nondisclosure agreements.
