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.

Trademark cases are collected from over 1,100 courts worldwide. As intellectual property has become a global matter, Darts-ip data helps users see the full picture by making global trademark cases completely accessible.




Once a document is gathered, such as a decision, it’s analyzed by a local trademark 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, intellectual property cases becomes data that is accessible, searchable, and mineable.
