Smart contracts, (blockchains, distributed ledgers) and rights management broadly construed are the themes of today's Spotlight Patents. Assigned to Professor Vijay Madisetti, the first patent addresses techniques for smart contracts for security and filtering. Assigned to Strong Force, the second patent addresses techniques for creating an aggregate stack of intellectual property.
11494764, “Methods and systems for smart contracts for security and filtering,” assigned to Professor Vijay Madisetti.
A blockchain value transfer method including receiving a transfer request, the transfer, executing a first smart contract function to perform data analytics on the transfer request and a second smart contract function to implement a security response responsive to an inconsistency in the transfer request, and recording a result of the second smart contract function to at least one of a SQL database, a NoSQL database, and an analytics service. The inconsistency of the transfer request is a deviation from a learned transfer pattern identified from the prior smart contracts for prior transfer requests.
11494694, “Transaction-enabled systems and methods for creating an aggregate stack of intellectual property,” assigned to Strong Force TX Portfolio 2018, LLC.
The present disclosure describes transaction-enabling systems and methods. A system may include a smart contract wrapper configured to access a distributed ledger including a plurality of intellectual property (IP) licensing terms corresponding to a plurality of IP assets, wherein the plurality of IP assets include an aggregate stack of IP, interpret an IP description value and an IP addition request, and, in response to the IP addition request and the IP description value, to add an IP asset to the aggregate stack of IP.
