Design and models — data extracted

Once a document is gathered, such as a decision, it’s analyzed by a local design & models specialist. Globally, a team of more than 170 analysts reads case documents every day and extracts precious data from them. When we extract data from legal documents, intellectual property cases becomes data that is accessible, searchable, and mineable.

Tailor-made search tools

The larger the database, the harder it is to find what you are looking for. When it comes to design & model, multiple filters enable you to find the right cases.

  • Type search: Search for decisions involving registered or un-registered designs.
  • Verbal element: Search for decisions using the verbal reference or the common/famous name of the design.
  • Locarno class: Search for decisions involving specific Locarno class(es).
  • Points of law: Search for decisions containing substantive discussions on specific points-of-law.
