Clarivate Plc (NYSE: CCC), a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, announced today the integration of Darts-ip™ case law data with the Innography™ IP intelligence and analytics solution, to provide significantly enhanced strategic decision making across the IP lifecycle.
The integration follows the acquisition of CPA Global by Clarivate, and will see corporate IP departments and law firm customers benefit from multi-jurisdictional litigation data from 141 countries – covering millions of patent cases across 3,000 courts in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. The insights from big data analysis of more than 1.8 million patent cases will inform customers in their patent research, competitive intelligence, portfolio strategy, licensing, litigation, M&A due diligence, freedom to operate and more.
This is the third integration of Darts-ip into Clarivate products in under a year following the acquisition of the company:
- In March 2020, Darts-ip global IP case data was integrated with CompuMark™. By adding trademark cases to the world’s largest trademark database, trademark professionals gained greater context for their most important decisions when building and protecting their trademark portfolio, including the litigiousness and history of a specific mark or owner across the full spectrum of trademark research solutions: screening, clearance and protection.
- In July 2020, Darts-ip was integrated with Derwent Innovation™. The combined solution gave our customers greater context to support better, more confident decisions when building and protecting their IP portfolios. By integrating patent case data with Derwent Innovation, customers gained a more complete picture of potential obstacles with litigation history, allowing for easy assessment of immediate risks and opportunities, improved efficiency, accelerated decision making and reduced cost.
- Now, Darts-ip has been integrated with Innography, connecting international litigation data and patent data with ultimate subsidiary and parent assignments to facilitate seamless analysis and provide a fuller picture across jurisdictions. The expanded offering will include enhanced definition of the industry renowned PatentStrength™ metric, to indicate the external strength of any asset in a portfolio, now updated to factor even more patent data from across the globe.
Jeff Roy, President, IP Group at Clarivate, said: “With all our acquisitions, including CPA Global and Darts-ip, it’s important for us to focus on immediately delivering value to our customers. This integration represents one of the most popular Innography requests from our customers. We’re listening, and we are hard at work helping our customers lower their total cost of doing business with customized packages and fully integrated solutions. Today’s announcement is a terrific early indicator of how our customers will benefit from the combination of Clarivate and CPA Global, and we’re excited about what the future will bring.”
“With the integration of Darts-ip into three Clarivate products in under a year following the acquisition of the company, we can now provide IP professionals with the opportunity to take a truly global deep dive into IP data, make smarter decisions faster and mitigate risks based on actionable intelligence. IP analysis plays a crucial role in strategic decision making and with these three integrations, customers will be better equipped to handle their next challenge, lower their total cost of doing business and seize new commercial opportunities.”
