Stanford Law Launches Online IP Database
The Law, Science & Technology Program at Stanford Law School today launched the Stanford Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghouse (IPLC), a first-of-its-kind online database that offers comprehensive information about intellectual property disputes within the United States.
The online research tool, open to the public, will enable scholars, policymakers, lawyers, judges, and journalists to review real-time data about IP legal disputes filed across the country, and ultimately to analyze the efficacy of the system that regulates patents, copyrights, trademarks, antitrust, and trade secrets.
The IPLC database includes real-time data summaries, industry indices, and trend analysis together with a full-text search engine, providing detailed and timely information that cannot be found elsewhere in the public domain.
Stanford Law School is releasing the IPLC in phased modules, and today’s release, the Patent Litigation Module, includes more than 23,000 cases filed in US district courts since 2000—raw data for every district court patent case and all results (outcomes and opinions).
