Darts-ip and KATZAROV team up to provide a frame of reference for global IP case issues

April 2, 2018 / Blog, Homepage news, Press Release


Darts-ip entered into a partnership with KATZAROV, augmenting Darts-ip’s global IP case law portfolio with KATZAROV’s expertise into over 200 jurisdictions.

In order to contextualize the global dimensions of IP cases, it is crucial to understand the specifics of the local jurisdiction they take place in. Darts-ip will integrate links to jurisdictional information into our database from KATZAROV, editor and publisher over the past ninety years of KATZAROV’s Manual on Industrial Property. This information, referenced by IP domain type and country of litigation, will guide users to the relevant legal framework applicable to each specific case.

The integration of this information will allow for stronger monitoring and preparation tools for all members of the Darts-ip community. In addition to the litigation details, community members will be granted access to KATZAROV’s Manual platform, and gain crucial insight into the country’s IP regime and information highlighting key aspects about jurisdictions with which they may not be familiar, such as:

  • the international and regional conventions to which a given country is member state,
  • references to the latest applicable legislation
  • conditions and requirements for prosecuting and enforcing local IP rights, and more.  

KATZAROV and Darts-ip are natural partners, with complementary global information assets.  While KATZAROV provides legal services and knowledge on how to navigate foreign jurisdictions to obtain and enforce IP rights, Darts-ip provides an extensive IP case law database encompassing trademarks, patents, copyrights, domain names and designs and models.

“We’re very proud to work with Katzarov, who for nearly a hundred years has provided the most reliable and up-to-date jurisdictional overview possible. Integrating their data is a natural extension of case law results on the Darts-ip database, allowing users to find everything they need in one place. It’s just practical!” Claire Fobe, Darts-ip Global Legal Content Manager, commented.

This new feature will be rolled out in May, 2018 for all members of the Darts-ip community.
