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.
TAILOR-MADE SEARCH TOOLS – PATENTS
The larger the database, the harder it is to find what you are looking for. When it comes to patents, multiple filters enable you to find the right cases.
Global Patent Family Search
Search for decisions about a certain patent and on its worldwide family.
Search for decisions based on the amount of damages attributed.
Search for EPO decisions using technical board reference and distribution code as filters.
With the Pharma filter, find all decisions in the world on patents protecting a molecule (e.g. drospirenone), an NDA number or a trade name (source: orange book).
Narrow your results to decisions involving parties identified as Non-Practicing Entity (NPE) by our proprietary algorithm.
Claim Construction Search
Search for decisions in which a specific term has been defined.
