COMPLAINTS, HEARINGS, DECISIONS, AND SETTLEMENTS

In addition to the decisions, Darts-ip also gathers critical documents such as complaints, hearings, and settlements when available. This means users can learn the existence of a new case before it reaches a decision. Also, you’re not missing on cases that settle when the information is made available.

Patent cases are collected from over 1,200 courts worldwide. As intellectual property has become a global matter, Darts-ip data helps users see the full picture by making global patent cases completely accessible

PATENTS– DATA EXTRACTED

Once a document is gathered, such as a decision, it’s analyzed by a local patent specialist.
Globally, a team of more than 170 analysts read case documents every day and extract precious data from them.
When we extract data from legal documents, patent cases become data that is accessible, searchable and mineable.
