Intellectual Property Litigation Database Launched By Stanford University
The launch of the Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghouse is the subject of a post in IP Blawg:
With much fanfare, the Stanford Law School Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghouse (“IPLC”) was launched on December 1. The IPLC is a searchable online database that provides statistical information on patent lawsuit filings and outcomes since 2000. The database also includes copyright and trademark suits, although there is not yet statistical information available on those types of cases, and will in the future include trade secret filings.
The IPLC makes for interesting and informative surfing and should be added to the arsenal of tools used by patent litigators and decision makers of all kinds. It can be accessed at http://lexmachina.stanford.edu/patents. Only registered individuals can use the database, but registration is free and easy.
