The Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghousen is mentioned in a story in the National Law Journal about The Kauffman Foundation's Law Innovation and Growth Project:

Researchers at top law schools will be taking a close look at how U.S. law affects economic growth and ways it can be modified to help spur innovation. The research is part of a new initiative — dubbed Law, Innovation and Growth — that is being funded with $10 million from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The Kauffman Foundation is a nonprofit organization that promotes entrepreneurship as a way to grow economies.

The five-year Law, Innovation and Growth project will incorporate a variety of research as well law school seminars and finncial support for the Stanford Law Schools' new Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghouse.


Law, Innovation and Growth will also provide funding for Stanford Law School's Intellectual Property Litigation Clearinghouse, a searchable online database of all patent cases since 2000. Litan said the clearinghouse will help parties analyze the system that regulates patents, copyrights, trademarks and antitrust and trade secrets.
