About us

This blog consists of excerpts from our Directions patent review service. We are providing a free monthly patent review to promote our service. Anyone is free to subscribe to the blog and we hope you enjoy finding out more about what is under development worldwide, as seen through ink jet patent applications.

However, please don’t view the Ink Jet Patents Blog as showing the most important developments. What we are doing is publishing a wide range of examples of what is being patented.

inkjetpatents.com and Directions patent review service is brought to you by Pivotal Resources Ltd. Pivotal Resources was founded by Mike Willis in late 1995 to offer a wide range of services to the digital printing industry – well beyond consulting. The name comes from our services being “Pivotal” to future business decisions of our clients when we provide “Resources”. We operate a virtual company – with associates and partners around the world who work with us on projects.

Pivotal Resources operates at the forefront of this technology, working for vendors and users world-wide. We assist in defining and reviewing product strategies, support the development of new products and processes, and help our clients gain market position. Our clients are based world-wide and include many familiar names. Among our services and activities are Directions, our ink jet patent review service and the Ink Jet Academy course.
