Abstract

In a previous paper, "IP Litigation in United States District Courts: 1994 to 2014", I undertook a broad-based empirical review of Intellectual Property litigation in U.S. federal district courts from 1994 to 2014. This brief update extends that data to include the year 2015.

This update contains new data on: (1) the overall state of copyright, patent and trademark litigation, (2) copyright litigation and the John Doe phenomenon, (3) the continuation of the patent litigation explosion and (4) the geographic distribution of copyright, patent and trademark litigation. This Update is not intended as a stand-alone article, it should be read in conjunction with the previous paper.

Keywords: Intellectual Property, Litigation, Empirical, Copyright, Patent, Trademark
