Comprehensive U.S. and International Patent Data Now Delivers Innovative Visualizations and Integration to Transaction and Litigation Resources
ARLINGTON, VA (Aug. 1, 2018)—Bloomberg Law today announced the addition of a global patents tool to the Bloomberg Law platform. This patent research and data visualization offering is integrated with Bloomberg Law’s other resources, including technology-enhanced content, courts and administrative dockets, case decisions, and litigation analytics. This integration of the global patents database provides the most advanced resource of its kind to help practitioners quickly navigate and understand complex matters and situations. It demonstrates our expanding support for IP practitioners when combined with Bloomberg Law’s IP law news and Practical Guidance offerings.
“Our new global patents tool combines our latest platform technology with a comprehensive database of patent documents so that practitioners can better advise clients seeking to build, protect, and monetize their intellectual property assets on a global scale,” said Alex Butler, vice president and general manager at Bloomberg Law. “Our database features more than 100 million patents integrated with dockets, litigation resources and market information from Bloomberg L.P., so this content provides users new methods to save time and increase the certainty of their counsel and advice.”
Bloomberg Law’s global patent collection is provided to subscribers at no additional cost, reinforcing a commitment to providing continuous growth in value across the platform at one price. Bloomberg Law’s Patents & Trade Secrets Practice Center also features Practical Guidance for task-based, how-to coverage, including overviews, checklists, sample forms and agreements, timelines, drafting and negotiating guides, and more.
