Abstract

In this book chapter, we provide a roadmap of the sources of data on the various forms of intellectual property protection. We first explain what data is available about patents, copyrights, trademarks, and other types of intellectual property, and where to find it. Then we identify and analyze data sources specifically relating to intellectual property licensing and litigation, growing areas of research by scholars and lawyers.

Keywords: intellectual property, patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, data sources, dataset, empirical
