Welcome to fAST-IP
fAST IP is the world’s most comprehensive database of patents on the market and information to help AST Members analyze them. fAST IP is a user-friendly, web-based application developed by AST to rapidly disseminate information to our Members about high-technology patents actively for sale on the market. Through fAST IP, Members can search over 125,000 assets for those with potential applicability to hundreds of product and technology areas, each classified by subject matter experts, and thereby rapidly narrow the large number of patents on the market to a much smaller number that may be relevant to them. They can obtain analyses prepared by AST, and materials supplied by brokers and sellers.
Through AST and fAST IP, patent sellers gain access to many of the world’s largest and most sophisticated patent buyers. Each AST Member is actively engaged in analyzing opportunities presented in fAST IP.
AST Members may also use fAST IP to identify patents to purchase themselves or through other defensive organizations to which they belong.
