Our mission is to democratize virtual patent marking by breaking down the barriers to adoption and address the risks of self-managed virtual patent marking to ultimately become the global leader in virtual patent marking technology.
Terrifio Markr was born out of a recognition that virtual patent marking is underutilized by patent owners. While virtual patent marking (VPM) has many benefits, such as reducing the cost of traditional patent marking programs, and providing real-time information to customers, many patent owners struggle to adopt it due to a lack of knowledge and understanding of the process. There are many barriers of entry to virtual patent marking, by not knowing where to start or what is required to manage it correctly. Patent owners can often be aware of the benefits of VPM, but struggle with understanding the scale of the commitment in both time and personnel to get started, while not being able to get a fix on risks and negative outcomes.
Co-founder of Terrifio Markr, Jim Gastle, a Registered Patent Agent in Canada and the US with over 30 years of experience in the industry, realized that many of the barriers to adopting VPM could be addressed with a purpose-built technology dedicated to make the process as easy and accessible as possible. With input from US counsel throughout the process, Terrifio Markr was built with the goal of simplifying VPM for patent owners. The platform offers patent owners an easy and affordable way to virtually mark their patented products, and also keep the information up-to-date and accurate.Book A Demo
