Thanks for your comments. There is indeed an argument I didn't mention to justify this way of treating the data (that is: inventions produced at very closed dates, by the same firm are identical, or at least very similar in my data). I thus have to choose an arbitrary time window (that could be modified) to identify these "portfolios".

I should ideally find a measure that maximises the number of products in each portfolio in a given time window, but that seems rather difficult to implement...

In particular, if you start a first window at the first observation and then use the rule that no window can be more than a year long, then the windows so produced do not necessarily coincide with the set of disjoint windows that maximise the number of products within each, if indeed there is a unique set so defined. A quite different comment -- and here you may well have a rationale not presented -- is that seems a rather arbitrary way to reduce these data.
