Lighthouse IP has produced trademark data from over 200 authorities and maintains a worldwide network that enables global coverage. Sourced directly from the official publication of the various authorities, the entire processing from source (in some cases still paper) to data is done fully in Lighthouse IP’s cloud-based workflow, enabling quick and reliable updates plus full process control. Updates are available for over 180 authorities (the difference between the 200+ and 180 authorities is caused by authorities that have ceased publications or have ceased to exist (such as the USSR)).
Historical (backfile) data has been created by collecting publications worldwide. Through this process, the most complete possible dataset has been created, which is maintained with updates (frequency depending on authority publication cycle). All published information is available, with machine translations for the lists of goods and services added. For various authorities (like China, Japan, Korea), owner names are translated.
